NorStates Bank is a successor to financial institutions dating back to 1919. NorStates Bank is a community bank that has expanded beyond the borders of any one community to provide the highest quality financial services to anyone who calls northeastern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin their home. As a full service bank with eight locations throughout Lake County, we commit over $400 million in assets to offering our neighbors a complete line of loan, deposit, and cash management services. Our management is comprised of a strong, local board and management team of experienced bankers, many with more than 20 years of service to the bank.
