About Us

About-UsFounded in April of 1957, Plains State Bank has proudly served Texas for more than 50 years.

Plains State Bank is a state-chartered bank committed to promoting the economic development of our individual customers and our community as a whole. We bring you the best in full service banking backed by local ownership, friendly and caring staff, advanced technology and a strong sense of community pride.

As much as our great state has changed over the years, Plains State Bank has changed as well. We continue to grow and expand outside of our initial trade area of Yoakum County.

We are excited to be able to offer many new and diverse products and services to the customers of Plains State Bank.

Whether you are an existing customer or new to the Plains State Bank family, we welcome you.
