A lot has changed since we first opened our doors in 1917 – but one thing that hasn’t changed is the First State Bank commitment to friendly and personal service.
There's no place like home - and for over nine decades, First State Bank has found a home in Macomb County, servicing our customers and the community with eleven branches. We're locally owned and operated, which means that we're able to deliver services that are crafted to meet the needs of our neighbors and that decisions are made locally. And because this is where we're rooted, it means that as deposits grow, we're able to reinvest in our community.
Home was the corner of 9 Mile and Gratiot when we first opened in 1917 - we were known as Halfway State Bank, the first bank in the village of Halfway (you now know it as Eastpointe). We wouldn't become First State Bank for another twelve years - we changed our name in 1929. A lot has happened in the last century - and Macomb County has overcome any obstacles in its path and it has grown into the third largest county in the state. As our county has found growth - so have we.
We believe in our hometown and First State Bank will continue to support the growth of the Macomb community by providing innovative banking products and services and friendly and caring customer service. We are committed to remaining active and engaged within our community and promote a corporate culture of community involvement among our employees.
First State Bank strives to keep growing and to achieve success which allows us to continue doing more for the businesses and families right here in our hometown.
