Lakeview Bank opened for business on July 8, 2004 as a commercial bank driven by one fundamental premise--to serve the financial needs of the residents in the communities it serves and to improve the quality of life in those same communities. 

In the years since Lakeview Bank started, the United States suffered its worst economic stretch since the Great Depression and community banks around the country felt the brunt of a struggling economy. Lakeview Bank was not immune to those struggles, but it emerged as a stronger and more resourceful bank...and committed more than ever to strengthening the communities it serves.
