The roots of Availa Bank run deep in the Iowa soil. In 1870, German Bank of Carroll County began operations to serve its local community in western Iowa. Although the name of bank changed to Carroll County State Bank during World War I, the commitment to local businesses, farmers and individuals remained the cornerstone for continue growth in the area.
Over the years, we partnered with other banks in the region who shared our commitment of local people serving local needs. That included Council Bluffs Savings Bank in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and CSBank with offices in Pocahontas and Fort Dodge, Iowa. In 2017, Carroll County State Bank and its affiliates made the decision to adopt a single name for all institutions. That name was Availa Bank.
Today, Availa Bank celebrates a close to 150-year tradition in each and every location — providing local service to the local communities.
