Over 100 years old and growing strong.

Citizens State Bank was chartered in 1902 when a group of businessmen, farmers, and workers created a banking institution to not only meet their financial needs but also foster the growth of their small community in Cadott, Wisconsin.

Two moves occurred before settling at the current location and relocating the drive-up facility to Highway 27, near the Highway 29 interchange. In 1985, a branch bank was built at the corner of Highways 178 and S in Chippewa Falls. In 1995, another full service office was opened in Chippewa Falls at the corner of Highways J and X. In 2019, a branch was added in Cornell on Bridge Street. View all locations.
