Devoted to Community.

Highlands State Bank is a small, community-oriented bank dedicated to providing personalized service and competitive rates. Since we are part of the neighborhood, we have first-hand knowledge of the needs of local businesses and the people who live and work here. We use our knowledge to deliver quality banking to our customers through checking and savings accounts, mortgages, and consumer and business loans.

We’re known for our ability to make quick decisions and for our commitment to business success. Our representatives are equipped to interview customers and creatively solve problems to meet needs promptly. In everything, we strive to deliver the kind of attention and convenience our customers expect. We even have late hours throughout the workweek and hours on Saturday, so you can stop by more often.
