Washington State Bank was originally chartered in 1932 in Washington, Iowa. Today, our bank proudly remains a predominately locally owned institution. The bank offers many fine products and services to a diverse client base. 

Washington State Bank is locally owned and operated. The effect of this form of ownership is extensive. The board develops policies that are sensitive to the needs of the area without compromising sound banking principles. We know our customers and respond quickly to their needs. Our profits stay in the community in the form of dividends and additions to the bank's equity capital. We are often relied upon to provide leadership for special community causes and thus contribute many service hours and extensive financial support annually.

Probably the biggest effect of local ownership is growth. Our stockholders continually send referrals to us. You do not need to be referred in order to cultivate a relationship. Please accept this message as your invitation. You can join us by requesting information on products and services through our e-mail address.

We are also very proud of our staff at all three of our locations in Washington, Fairfield and Columbus Junction. Our bank officers average more than 20 years of banking experience, most of which has been with the Washington State Bank. Our future looks very bright. 

In summary, we are very proud and feel fortunate to be a part of three rural communities. Join us today! Our future never looked better.
