The Story Behind the Name

Prairie Financial Group is a division of Waukesha State Bank who has proudly called Waukesha, Wisconsin, home for over 70 years. As one of the largest locally owned, independent banks in the State of Wisconsin, Waukesha State Bank has been serving the financial needs of the community with a personalized, one-on-one approach to banking, and an emphasis on customer service and community involvement. 

It is a little known fact that Waukesha was called “Prairieville” in the mid-1800s. We are proud to honor the enduring legacy of Waukesha State Bank’s hometown by naming our Wealth Management Services division Prairie Financial Group.

It is upon this rich history and solid foundation that Prairie Financial Group will continue to serve the needs of our customers throughout Wisconsin and beyond.
