With a branch in Key West and a handful of employees, Key West State Bank began serving the banking needs of the Florida Keys community in 1955. As the Keys community grew, so did the Bank, steadily adding more services and branches. And although the name has since changed to First State Bank of the Florida Keys, the values that founded this bank remain unchanged - a locally owned institution operated for the benefit of the people of Monroe County.
Today over 50 years later, First State Bank continues to thrive and expand our line-up of products, services and delivery systems. We boast 11 offices from Key West to Key Largo, more than any other financial institution in Monroe County including the only bank in Stock Island as well as an office located inside the Key West Winn Dixie Supermarket. We have more ATM locations (24), more drive-thru lanes (17) and more operating hours each week (71) than any other bank too, which means greater convenience for our customers. And although we may be the oldest bank in Monroe County, our technology is state-of-the-art.
But what really has and always will set First State Bank apart are our people. We're your friends and neighbors. From our tellers to our president, we're all working to help you fulfill your dreams and aspirations, to create a better life for yourself and your family. Which is why we do all we can to see that your deposits go toward developing our own local communities.
So if you're looking for a bank that feels the way you do about the Keys, a bank run by people who have a real commitment to this area, switch to First State Bank...We're Locals Like You!
