Leighton State Bank is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

In 1911 we opened our doors as Farmers Savings Bank in Leighton. As a true community bank, we started with a goal to represent the interest of our local customers and shareholders.

In 1997, LSB established a location in the Dutch community of Pella. As our outreach to customers grew, so did our footprint as we expanded to our current home on Washington Street.

LSB acquired Monroe State Bank in 2014, expanding our services to the Monroe community.

In more than 100 years, we’ve expanded our locations and our services but our commitment to our customers has remained the same. Our mission is to equip you to grow financially strong.
