Celebrating 117 Years
of Dedication, Loyalty & Community
At Points West Community Bank, we’re proud of the last 117 years – the people who established our bank, the ones who expanded it, the communities that welcomed us, and especially the customers who have trusted us to serve and support them.
As is true with any operation, you don’t get to be 117 years old without grit, trust, and, of course, loyal customers and employees. From the bankers we hire to the businesses we support, it’s an honor and privilege to raise up those around us.

Since 1906, Points West has remained a true community bank, locally-owned and managed and committed to ensuring that the interests of our customers come first.
