Farmers Savings Bank was chartered on August 24, 1916 and was open for business September 11, 1916. A group of area farmers pooled their resources to start Farmers Savings Bank in Fostoria, Iowa. The bank was started on $15,000 with $6000 of that spent on a new building. The bank published its first financial statement eight months after opening with $78,000 on deposit. Farmers Savings Bank was one of two banks in Clay County, Iowa to survive the great depression crisis without closing for a reorganization period. In 1962, a new facility was built to replace the first building, moving off of Main Street to the edge of town next to Highway 71. By that time, the bank had grown to $1,300,000 in deposits.

In June of 2002, a new branch of Farmers Savings Bank was opened at a temporary location in Lakeland Square in Milford. The permanent Milford Bank facility was constructed and in operation the 1st week of January 2004.

In 2016, Farmers Savings Bank celebrated 100 years of serving our local communities. FSB currently has Deposits totaling over $115,000,000 and Assets over $150,000,000.

Our Team is excited to serve you and grow strong, trusted banking relationships and communities over the next 100 Years. Thank you for your continued confidence and trust in Farmers Savings Bank!
