What is an Independent bank?
There is something uniquely refreshing, distinctively American about
the word. Those four short syllables speak volumes about small towns,
and old glory stirring slowly in the breeze on a sunny summer day.
History of The Elkhart State Bank
The Elkhart State Bank was founded in 1911. In 1969 the bank became a member of the F.D.I.C. The bank has been and is a thriving institution serving Elkhart and Anderson County primarily. We pride ourselves in our customer relations and think of ourselves as the working man's bank. We are the only bank in the county that offers service charge free checking with no minimum balance requirements. The majority of our accounts are personal accounts. We also serve as the depository for the Elkhart Independent School District and the Slocum Independent School District.
