The bank opened for business on Dec. 9, 1959 with one location in downtown Las Vegas. Just as the founders envisioned, the bank has grown along with the state. In 1995, Nevada State Bank opened our first Elko branch. We now have 50 branches in 20 urban and rural communities across Nevada, and over the years we’ve maintained a tradition of unsurpassed customer service and community involvement. Nevada State Bank colleagues donate more than 5,000 hours of volunteer time each year to local non-profit groups and community organizations.
