Bank History

Beginning in 1911, the building at 15 S. Main, in downtown Clarkston, served as the area's bank. In early 1999, the doors to that same historically-rich structure opened again as Clarkston State Bank. The new Clarkston State Bank is the undertaking of eight local businessmen who are successful entrepreneurs.

Their goal: Clarkston deserves and needs a community bank. The new institution is locally managed and headquartered. Clarkston State Bank focuses its efforts in Clarkston and the surrounding area. The Bank is based in downtown Clarkston with two other branches in the Clarkston Area and one branch in Waterford.
