Our Philosophy

Owen County State Bank is proud to be a community bank. We've served Owen County with dedication for over 90 years, and we're excited to extend our local, personal service to our neighboring counties of Monroe, Lawrence, Greene, and Knox.

Being a COMMUNITY bank means more than just business; it's about supporting local schools, organizations, and causes that matter to our communities. Our team is our greatest asset, and we see our customers as family, not just numbers. We make all our lending decisions locally, ensuring quick approvals and understanding your needs. Even as a small bank, we believe we can make a big difference for you.
