    First State Bank and Trust is a community bank focused on serving the financial needs of the St. Croix Valley.  They are proud to help their clients achieve their financial goals while keeping deposits and lending local.  Beyond banking, they encourage a culture of caring and commitment through community outreach and development.  A strong community creates vibrancy and opportunity, and they are proud to be a member of this community.

    First State Bank and Trust opened its doors as First State Bank of South Stillwater in 1914. As the community grew from South Stillwater into the town of Bayport, the bank grew along with it, becoming First State Bank of Bayport in 1923.

    Over the years, their capabilities have broadened, offering insurance and investments, in addition to progressive banking services. Their Trust Services Department, established in 1987, holds over $4 billion in assets. The first affiliate branch was in Oak Park Heights, which is celebrating 25 years. The branch network includes a full service office in Hudson as well.

    First State Bank of Bayport became First State Bank and Trust in 2003 to better reflect their expanded services to various locations. What hasn't changed is their commitment to excellent personal service that you can trust. They are the same community bank with local ownership and management that was established more than one hundred years ago.
