Prairie du Chien, WI – Peoples State Bank is pleased to announce they will be opening a branch in Waukon, IA on April 3, 2023. This will be Peoples State Bank’s third branch in Iowa. In making this announcement, Board Chairman Tom Farrell said “This reflectsour keen interest in expanding further into NE Iowa and we have always enjoyed close business ties with many in the Waukon area.

communities that Peoples State Bank has passionately served for over 100 years.
