Formed in 1885, the Citizens Bank of DeGraff has served the community through the Great Depression, the Great Recession and everything in between. Our bank has the oldest surviving state bank charter in the state of Ohio. On January 3, 2014, Buckeye Nation Interim, a company formed by a diverse team of local business leaders, purchased the bank and in September 2014, the bank name was changed to Buckeye State Bank. The name changed publicly reflects the beginning of a new chapter of offering our clients in all of Ohio the “big bank” products and services with local decision-making and exceptional service. The bank strives to reflect the pride, honesty and hard work ethics Buckeyes are known for.
