about

OUr History

The State Bank has been a part of the Fenton community since 1898. H.B. Latourette, a long-time banker in the area, and four other prominent citizens organized the Commercial Savings Bank of Fenton. They sought to serve the needs of their neighbors and friends, thereby establishing a foundation of trust, a relationship that still exists today.

In 1988, Fentura Financial was created and changed the name of Commercial Savings Bank of Fenton to The State Bank. While our name changed, our dedication to establishing strong customer relationships and our commitment to community did not. On December 31, 2016, Fentura Financial also finalized their acquisition of St. Charles-based Community State Bank. To keep up with our community’s dynamic growth, Fentura Financial Partners changed its name to The State Wealth Advisors on June 30, 2016.

Today, we also serve the communities of Holly, Linden, Grand Blanc, Brighton, Farmington Hills, Birch Run, Burt, St. Charles, New Lothrop, Chesaning, Montrose, Thomas Township and Saginaw. The State Bank prides itself on its promise of convenient banking services and the highest level of customer service.
