Fowler State Bank opened its doors for business December 14, 1931. Fowler State Bank's evolution started during a severely depressed economy, with an original staff of ten. The original investors were issued shares and became owners of this institution. On November 30, 1983, Benton Financial Corporation was formed to be the parent holding company of the Fowler State Bank. Fowler State Bank continues to be the only subsidiary of Benton Financial Corporation. The bank has now surpassed its 90th anniversary and has grown past $200 million in assets. The main office remains at its original location with branches now operating in Fowler, Kentland, and Williamsport. Fowler State bank is proud to be "Community Owned. Community Grown.
