Citizens State Bank Celebrates 150 Years of Community Banking

In 1873, Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th president of the United States, Levi Strauss & Co. began manufacturing “waist overalls,” and the James-Younger Gang pulled off the first successful train robbery in the American West. Meanwhile, Citizens State Bank was organized on July 3, just three days after new banking laws were enacted in Indiana.

To honor 150 years of community banking, Citizens State Bank will celebrate with giveaways, promotional products, and community events throughout the year. A special website — — has been launched to share historical moments and to communicate current and upcoming events.

In addition, CSB has committed to increased spending and financial support of our community partners as part of the celebration. “While we’ve always been committed to supporting our communities, this year holds special meaning,” noted Dan Maddox, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “To thank our communities for their support over the past 150 years, we’re committed to donating $150,000 in 2023.”

“For 150 years, we’ve helped personal and business customers achieve their financial goals,” said Kirby Purciful, President of Citizens State Bank. “We’re excited to celebrate this milestone while focusing on our path forward.”

We invite you to regularly monitor our website and social media channels for updates and announcements.
