Sterling Bank is a community minded financial
institution that has served Northwestern Wisconsin since 1885.
Since 1885, we've been providing the people of
Northwestern Wisconsin with solid, personal and professional
banking services. Our commitment to superior home-town banking
began with the establishment of the Bank of Barron in May of
1885 and continued with its merger with Normanna Savings Bank in
The roots of our Chetek branch date back to
December, 1941, when it opened under the name of Indianhead
State Bank. In 1974, it changed its name to Chetek State Bank.
Sterling Bank emerged from the consolidation of the Chetek State
Bank and the Bank of Barron in 2001.
Today, with the addition of branches in Luck
in 2002 and Rice Lake in 2004, Sterling Bank now has the
leverage of more than $220 million of combined assets, the
stability and experience of more than a century of doing
business and most importantly, the commitment and personal
service that comes from being a community bank. We look forward
to continuing to provide our friends and neighbors with
convenient, personal and professional banking services for years
