In September of 1905, a group of 42 local citizens organized Lewiston State Bank.
Lewiston State Bank prospered and grew along with the community and the inevitable changes took place in the day-to-day operation. During this era of Lewiston State Bank history several national events occurred that had direct impact on the banking industry. The Great Depression and the Stock Market Crash highlighted by Black Thursday, October 24, 1929, had a devastating effect on economic and financial conditions nationwide. These events created conditions that required strong leadership to deal with financial hardships faced by bank customers and the community at large.
This example of strong leadership formed a pattern that has allowed Lewiston State Bank to remain strong and vibrant for over a century.
