Who We Are

At First State Bank Southwest, we are truly a community bank and are very proud of that fact. With ownership and directors residing in the area, we can make decisions very rapidly and can be flexible and sensitive to the needs of our customers.

The First State Bank Southwest was chartered in 1903 and now has offices in six locations to help service our customers in southwest Minnesota and South Dakota.
