A Note from Our President

Welcome to Buckeye State Bank!

Our Bank was formed in 1885 as the Citizens Bank of DeGraff in Logan County. In 2014, a group of local investors purchased the Bank. To reflect our goal to establish Buckeye-Style Banking throughout Ohio, we changed our name to Buckeye State Bank, now headquartered in the central Ohio city of Powell. Our offices range from the Northwest Ohio market in Perrysburg, to our original location of DeGraff to central Ohio with our Powell and Upper Arlington offices.

What is Buckeye-Style Banking?

It’s banking built on relationships, honesty and integrity. We are not a “Big Bank” or headquartered in another state. We are located right here in the great state of Ohio. Where midwestern values matter. Just because we value relationships doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice great products. At Buckeye State Bank, Buckeye-Style Banking is providing great products and services that are as good or better than the Big Banks, but with exceptional client service that’s based and founded on developing a relationship with you!

Why Bank with Buckeye?

Bank Local

Banking Local is more than a slogan we use at Buckeye. The checking, savings or CD that you hold with us, is invested right back into our community through local loans to local residents for a car or a home, or to local businesses to expand their building or buy equipment, retaining and expanding local employment. Also, our team members are right in your backyard – born and raised a Buckeye. Decisions are not made in some office in New York, rather in our home state of Ohio. Local Decisions, Local People and Local Investment.
