Shelby State Bank opened a new branch in Montague in August 2017.  The branch is located on the north end of the bridge at 4525 Dowling Street, bordering beautiful White Lake. 

Earlier in 2017, a large out-of-state bank closed its Montague office and left the area completely.  Shelby State Bank not only brought banking back to Montague, but community banking where people can have confidence that their hometown is a priority with the place they keep their money.

The office is managed by Sharon Blankenship, an experienced lender and active member of the White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.  Sharon knows the area and makes her home here, so she is eager to oversee the types of involvement and reinvestment that Montague deserves. 

Combined with our nearby “sister branch” in Whitehall, area residents and businesses have unrivaled convenience for their banking and capital needs.
