About Us

Since April of 1908, The Randall State Bank has proudly served our customers in Randall and the surrounding area. Throughout our history, we have stood shoulder to shoulder with our customers in times of economic challenges, like the Great Depression, as well as in times of prosperity. From our very beginning, our mission has been to be your home town bank by providing the quality service our customers deserve.

While the times may have changed, our mission has not. Today, we offer all the conveniences of the large banks such as internet banking, debit cards and free checking accounts just to mention a few. At the Randall State Bank, you can still expect that personal service that you can only receive from your friends at your home town bank. At the Randall State Bank, we are big enough to serve you, but small enough to know you.
