On April 11, 1911 the Citizens State Bank was started by A. A. “Tony” Griffiths. The bank opened in Gridley, Kansas, in the present-day Gridley City Hall building. In 1964 the Trimble family purchased the bank, and in 1982 the Citizens State Bank moved into a new building in Gridley, where the main office is still located. Since then, Citizens State Bank has grown to nine locations.
During the last century, many things in the banking world have changed, but the values on which Citizens State Bank was built remain the same. We are a full service financial institution, organized and operated to meet the financial needs of individuals, businesses, and organizations. Our goal is to thoroughly know our customers and provide outstanding customer service.
