CSRA bank celebrates 120th anniversary

When Queensborough National Bank & Trust was founded, Teddy Roosevelt was in the White House. The local bank just celebrated its 120th anniversary.

Founded in May 1902, it was originally called the First National Bank of Louisville, which is a small town located about an hour from Augusta. Queensborough now has 27 locations in towns throughout Georgia, including Augusta, Waynesboro, Sylvania, and Statesboro.

The bank, which was established with only a few employees, now has a staff of more than 350 people, and currently manages more than $2 billion in assets.


“The amount of growth our team has accomplished throughout recent history is truly astounding,” said Queensborough President and CEO, Bill Easterlin. “Our bankers and support staff continue to impress me every day.”

Easterlin’s great grandfather founded the bank, which changed its name to Queensborough National Bank & Trust in 2006. In 2021, Newsweek named it the Best Small Bank in Georgia.
