About Us

First State Bank is a community bank that has served the people of our communities since 1948. The Panhandle region values freedom and integrity, and these values have guided the development of First State Bank throughout our history.

We now have three branches, in Stratford, Dumas, and Dalhart. We provide our customers with the most advanced financial products and services while retaining a close, personalized approach to customer service. Beyond banking, we partner with organizations to help build a stronger community, such as our efforts with America's Promise Alliance, dedicated to improving the lives of our youth.
