Baylake Bank is very pleased to have been serving the families and businesses of our communities since 1876! It was in 1876 that the State Bank of Kewaunee was chartered, with the Bank of Sturgeon Bay becoming a chartered bank in 1889. The two served their communities side-by-side until 1994, when the Bank of Sturgeon Bay’s eight Door County locations and the State Bank of Kewaunee’s four locations merged under the Baylake Bank name.
Since that time, we have added locations in Green Bay and central Wisconsin, online banking has become hugely popular, and our asset size has grown to more than $1 billion. What hasn’t changed in the least is that we continue to live & work here, and to support our communities through financial contributions and volunteer support.
At Baylake Bank, that means a very wide extent of interests and organizations are recipients of our support. With 300+ employees and 27 financial center locations, we have representation on local economic development boards, town historic committees, library boards, performing arts groups, and much, much more. As a financial institution, we know it helps keep us connected with the wide range of individuals and organizations which we are interdependent upon for success, both today and into the future.
We can all be proud to live in an area that is rich in individuals and organizations who have worked hard to seek solutions before potential issues become problems. We strive to be proactive in making this a healthy and prosperous environment for ourselves and our families. 7
