Tennessee State Bank was proud to celebrate 40 years of service to our customers and communities last year.  It all began in 1972 when a small group of Sevier County residents had the vision to form a new financial institution.  We are proud to be locally owned and operated with founders who share the idea that a bank should provide the highest level of customer service.  We are a community bank that takes great pride in providing products and services that benefit both business and personal needs.  Tennessee State Bank is pleased to partner with our communities for charitable causes and donations of time, money, and education for the communities at large, including our youth. 

The past several years have been challenging for many local and national banks.  We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our customers and depositors that Tennessee State Bank is a strong, well-capitalized, well-managed financial institution.  Tennessee State Bank was happy to end 2012 profitable and are planning to continue that trend into 2013. 

We hope that our newly designed website will reflect our desire to continue to support technology changes and advancements within the banking industry.  We are committed to providing hometown service which reflects "Banking at its Best".SM Our friendly mobile banking RV staff is available to assist with community events and banking services by "Bringing Banking to You".SM

In closing, we thank our shareholders and customers who have continued to support and trust us with their business. To the directors and employees who work so hard to make us the best, thank you for all that you do.  Tennessee State Bank is proud to serve  Sevier, Knox, Jefferson and Cocke Counties with 15 branches total and we appreciate the opportunity that all these communities have given us to show them how we regard banking as a trust to handle with honor and integrity.
