Joined Better Banks in 2011
Farmer's State Bank in Astoria joined the Better Banks family in 2011 becoming the sixth branch. Better Banks Astoria is still located on Main Street in the original building, which dates back to 1819. During the past 25 years, the bank has seen many changes.
Astoria will continue to provide customers the high quality service they are accustomed to and keep them informed of any future changes. We are always looking for new ways to serve our current customers, as well as acquire new customers.
