Our Staff & Directors

Our Philosophy

At Owen County State Bank we take great pride in being a small community Bank and we know with pride comes responsibility. That's why we are happy to be expanding the same great local personal service we've been offering in Owen County for over 85 years to the citizens and businesses in our surrounding neighbor counties of Monroe and Greene. We take our role as a COMMUNITY bank seriously and know that the only way to be a good business partner is to be a great community partner and that means supporting local schools, organizations and the causes important to the areas we serve. Our biggest asset is our people and we believe in treating all our customers as family, not numbers. We embrace that by making all lending decisions locally, which allows us to not only make quick approvals but know you and your needs. We truly believe that as a small, local bank we can do big things for you.
