The Record-Herald

First State Bank announced recently that progress is underway on the site of the future Washington Court House banking center. The new banking center will be located at the one-and-a-half acre lot at the intersection of U.S. 62 and U.S. 22 in downtown Washington C.H.

The new office at 543 Clinton Ave. will face the Kroger store and will offer Fayette County a drive-up ATM, multiple drive-thru lanes, and modern office space to serve customers for years to come.

In the coming weeks, the construction crew will begin tearing down the existing structures and preparing the land for the start of the construction, which is slated to begin next month. The move from the current Washington C.H. location to the new location will happen in late 2016.

“We are really excited to be building a new banking center in Washington Court House,” said Mike Pell, President and CEO of First State Bank. “Since coming to Fayette County in 2014, we have grown substantially. We felt the timing was right to build a new facility that would allow us to provide the best customer service and also demonstrate our continued commitment to the community.”

First State Bank offers customers a full range of products including traditional, personal, commercial and agricultural loan and deposit solutions. Additionally, First State Bank customers have the option of convenient online and mobile banking. FSB Mobile App users also now have the option of mobile check deposit, so checks can be deposited anywhere, anytime.

Dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and high value products while enhancing shareholder value, First State Bank has been a trusted and respected community institution since 1884. With banking center locations in Adams, Brown, Highland and Fayette counties and a loan production office in Clinton County, all banking center operations and management are locally controlled.
