Who We Are

For more than 100 years, customers in Western Wisconsin have benefited from a friendly, knowledgeable and locally-based staff. Working for you and with you, Citizens State Bank strives to always be the Right Bank…Right Now. 

Our History 

In July 1904, we opened our first office on Main Street in Woodville, Wisconsin and we have remained there ever since. While the banking industry has changed a lot over the years, our commitment to serving our valued customers remains strong. 

1990 – In order to serve our expanding customers’ needs, we opened our second branch in Menomonie. That marked the beginning of a decade of exciting growth.

1993 – We acquired the First State Bank of Elmwood. This became our third office. 

1998 – We acquired Bank St. Croix with offices in Roberts and Hudson. We then moved our headquarters to the Hudson office. 

Today – We proudly serve customers in five banking offices: Elmwood, Hudson, Menomonie, Roberts and Woodville.


Our Values

We believe that how we treat customers, employees and our communities defines who we are. That’s why we created four core values as the foundation of our business:

Integrity – We work in a spirit of honesty, trust, respect and open communications with our team, customers and communities. 

Customer focus – We are passionate about understanding customer needs and exceeding their expectations. 

Team focus – We support employees and empower them to work together to produce exceptional results. 

Agility – We believe in fostering creativity and innovation in order to continue to meet the changing needs of our customers and communities.
