In 1904, First State Bank opened it's doors as a commercial bank. Today, the bank operates nine banking centers located in communities throughout Central and Western Illinois including our new full service banking center at 9000 N. Knoxville Ave. in Peoria. The foundation of the bank was built on providing best in class banking products and services to the agriculture based communities it serves. Over the years, First State has evolved into a full service commercial bank with expertise in business banking as well as mortgage lending.
Adhering to sensible, conservative standards has kept First State safe and secure for generations. Bauer Financial Reports, Inc. has awarded First State a Five-Star Superior rating and a designation on their Recommended Bank & Thrift Report.
