When a group of Russellville bankers decided they had a better way to bank, they decided to create one, founding First State Bank. FSB was designed to provide a genuinely local approach to banking-local management and staff, local decisions-guided by a vision rooted in providing what is best for local citizens. We are a true family business and have grown from one branch and a handful of employees to five locations and staff nearing 60 employees.

The bank is committed to the providing the best financial products and services to the communities it serves. We continue to invest in state of the art technology that provides small business owners with products and tools to make managing their business easier.

The bank has another financial service provider located in the bank's main office at 3103 East Main; Community First Trust Company, a full service trust provider.

Community First Trust Company is the only independent trust company in the River Valley. Some of the services they offer are wealth management, estate planning, asset management, retirement planning and business succession. Linda Butler, Trust Officer of Community First Trust Company stated "Solid performance, effective communication and outstanding client services are at the heart of everything we do.

We are ready to help you with estate planning, asset management, self-directed IRAs, and other trust services.
