The Wittkopf family, owners of the bank since 1955, with three generations participating, have a strong commitment to bring the bank our forefathers founded into the future, as a full service independent community bank.
Yesterday, Today AND Tomorrow
The State Bank of Florence was born of the same rugged logging and mining character that marked the beginning of our community. Mr. Hiram D. Fisher laid out our town in March of 1880 and within 60 days sold $60,000 worth of land at $100 per lot, $150 per corner lot. He established a Post Office and took charge himself in May of the same year. Through his efforts, Florence County was created in 1882.
On December 29, 1890, a Certificate of Incorporation to Commence the Business of Banking on the First of January, 1891, was signed by Hiram D. Fisher, Edward E. Wilcox, Peter McGovern, Otto Davidsen and Hans Hansen. And so was born The State Bank of Florence to serve the financial needs of the community and area, which remains our primary objective today.
Today we stand strong. Our capital remains strong, reserves are excellent and our growth is steady and stable. Our facilities are modern and we have embraced technology to offer the most up-to-date financial products and services to our customers. We are proud to serve the financial needs of the area and to be part of a growing and independent community. We are more than 100 years involved, and we look forward to each year with the same enthusiasm those pioneers had when they chartered our bank.
We are The State Bank of Florence. . . and we are here for YOU today, AND tomorrow!
