In 1902, a group of local residents opened State Bank of Herscher at 105 South Main Street. Since then, the progressive growth that we have experienced has allowed us to expand and to move to our present locations.In July of 2015 State Bank of Herscher was acquired by Foresight Financial Group, Inc. The State Bank of Herscher's charter dating back to 1902, coupled with its longstanding commitment to its local community, perfectly aligns with Foresight's motto of Community Building through Community Banking. The acquisition by FFG allows SBH to be able to offer products and services comparable to the big banks, while keeping the decision making local so we can best serve our local community. Foresight is headquartered in Rockford, Illinois, serving fourteen branch locations and one loan production office in Northwest Illinois and Kankakee County. Foresight has five other independently chartered subsidiary banks: Northwest Bank of Rockford, State Bank in Freeport, State Bank of Davis, Lena State Bank and German-American State Bank in German Valley. State Bank of Herscher is built on the principles of offering the best banking and lending services and providing uncompromising customer service, we are here to help you build your financial future. Our experience and knowledge in banking and lending means you get the solution you need, not the one that is best for our bottom line. Serving you is our honor and our pleasure.
