• First State Bank and Trust Celebrates Hudson Groundbreaking

  • First State Bank and Trust recently celebrated the planned relocation of their downtown Hudson bank with a groundbreaking ceremony. The new two-story, 13,200 SF building, located at the corner of Vine and Carmichael will be a full-service bank offering retail, commercial, and mortgage banking services as well as trust, investment, and insurance services.

    “First State Bank and Trust focuses on serving the diverse financial needs of our St. Croix Valley community. We are looking forward to establishing a permanent presence in Hudson to better serve our current and future clients in Western Wisconsin,” said Jason Howard, President of First State Bank and Trust.
    First State Bank and Trust, which is locally owned and based in the St. Croix Valley, has been serving clients for over 100 years. The organization is unique in being able to combine local decision making with a wide range of financial services not typically found at other financial institutions including trust and investment services through its Trust department, as well as insurance services, through Valley Agencies, Inc., an affiliate.
    The project is designed by Hudson-based Studio EA. First State Bank and Trust has also engaged local general contractor Braden Construction and is focused on using local labor and materials when possible.

    The building, when complete in summer 2021, will allow First State Bank and Trust to support its growing St. Croix Valley staff with 25 employees eventually calling the building their home office. The building will feature a drive thru, large training space, 4 high tech conference rooms, and welcoming open common spaces.
