The History of

Peoples Bank

"The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune."

Peoples Bank was charted back in 1871 in Ottawa, KS.  Wint Winter, Sr. purchased that small Ottawa bank in 1974 and planted the seeds for a totally new concept in banking.  Today, Peoples Bank remains family owned and operated by the Winter Family.  And that small bank in Ottawa?  It has grown to include 35 banking locations across nine states.
