Raritan State Bank - Established 1920
From the organization of Raritan State Bank in 1920 until present day, the small west central Illinois village of Raritan, Illinois takes great pride in having one of the areas oldest and strongest banking facilities. Located 7 miles west of IL Rt. 67 between Monmouth and Macomb, Illinois, this rural community banking institution enjoys a reputation for providing excellence in both personal and community service.
During the Depression Era Raritan State Bank was one of few area banks that through personal sacrifice of directors, and loyalty of depositors, remained open to serve the surrounding communities. The descendants of those directors and depositors would still be recognized names as being customers of the bank 86 years later.
In 1999, a need for expansion was recognized by bank management and directors, and a branch facility was constructed on IL Rt. 41, on the north edge of Abingdon, Illinois. The Abingdon Banking Center is enjoying expected growth and success, helping to make Raritan State Bank more profitable than at any other time in the history of the bank.
In 2007, another addition to the Raritan State Bank was constructed in Bushnell, Illinois at the South end of Bushnell on Rt. 41. Management and the directors once again recognized the need for growth in Raritan State Bank therefore the Bushnell Banking Center was developed. Expectations are high for this new member of the Raritan State Bank organization.
