The State Bank of Geneva

Locally owned since 1903

With what seems to be a bank on every corner, The State Bank of Geneva continues to successfully compete with larger conglomerates. "We have our roots where others have their branches", is certainly true in this time of buy-outs and mergers. The State Bank of Geneva was here yesterday, is here today, and will be here tomorrow.
