President's Message

Greetings from The Harvard State Bank!

If this is your first contact with The Harvard State Bank, or if you have been a longtime customer, welcome to The Harvard State Bank's Website. The Harvard State Bank has a long tradition, but also is probably technologically ahead of most financial institutions.

The Harvard State Bank was founded on August 6, 1866 making us the oldest bank in McHenry County. As the longest and continuous bank in McHenry County, we have served the Harvard community and the area as an independent community bank nourishing the growth of Northern Illinois. On this rich heritage, we have built a foundation of community service, giving our customers up-to-date and convenient access to their funds. To name just a few of the services we offer, a complete Web site including bill pay, remote deposits, ATM’s Debit Cards, Telephone Banking and our facilities that are conveniently located. We are located in four Communities in Northern Illinois; Harvard, Hebron, Oregon and Rockford. You have the opportunity to access your accounts with The Harvard State Bank any place in the world, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, for we have built a line of services and products to support your lifestyle.

In addition to taking care of your traditional banking services, we are one of very few banks that have our own Trust Department to help you manage your funds. Through our Trust Department, we can help you also with your investment needs; serve as Trustee of your trust, Administrator of your estate and Financial Guardian for minors or disabled persons.

The Harvard State Bank has a well-trained Loan Department to assist customers in their borrowing needs to finance homes, cars, agriculture and businesses loans. We now have real estate applications on line or stop in at one of our convenient locations to discuss your financial needs with one of our loan officers.

Please accept this as your invitation to become one of our satisfied customers.

Best Regards,
Roger L. Lehmann
