Message from the President
Founded in 1893, Washington State Bank is based in Washington, Louisiana, and is celebrating 125 years of premiere community service. We are the oldest state chartered bank in St. Landry Parish, and the second oldest state chartered bank in the State of Louisiana.
When Washington State Bank began, the small town of Washington, Louisiana was the hub of trade for the area. The steamboat traffic on Bayou Courtableau and the railroad had turned Washington into a major trading post. Fortunately, today we are located at the virtual crossroads of I-10 and I-49, and are positioned for continued prosperity.
Our branch locations are in Opelousas, Arnaudville, Lafayette, Eunice, Leonville, and Palmetto. We deeply enjoy our community partnerships in the areas we serve.
Proudly serving on the Board of Directors are Sue Soileau Durand, Harold Stelly, David Prochaska, Ellis Daigle, and Aaron Harris.
We are committed to remaining an independent, locally-owned community bank and have invested in modern and efficient systems in order to provide excellent products and services. The support of our well-trained staff assures you, the customer, that your request, no matter how small or large is handled professionally.
On behalf of the Washington State Bank family….thank you for allowing us to be your business partner.
Sue Soileau Durand
President/CEO/Chairman of the Board
