The history of the Olpe State Bank dates back over 100 years. On October 5, 1905, a group of local investors founded the Olpe Sate Bank. Originally, the bank was a frame building located where your local tavern sits now. Four years later in 1909, the bank moved to a new two-story brick building. This new building was located directly south of the present day location. Since 1976 the Olpe State Bank has called 202 Westphalia home. For the past 112 years, the Olpe State Bank has remained actively involved in community reinvestment through lending for homes, personal loans, businesses, and agriculture. Respecting individuals and their needs, while building relationships through face to face interaction, this bank is committed to supporting our customers and community. This small town bank has weathered the “Great Depression,” the “Banking Crisis of the 80s,” and the “Great Recession of 2008”. As new obstacles arise, the Olpe State Bank has every intention of facing them head on to continue to serve you, our community, and our schools. Our location may have changed, but the heart of our employees has not. We will always remain a community bank.
