Bank of Eastern Oregon
Bank of Eastern Oregon is a full-service community bank, featuring local decision making and offering loans for commercial, agricultural, and consumer purposes.
Just before the end of WWII, a group of forward-thinking farmers and ranchers in eastern Oregon saw a need for banking services in their region. Banding together with others, they formed the Gilliam County Bank in Arlington, Oregon, in February of 1945. Since its inception, the focus of the bank has been to provide quality banking services to rural communities of eastern Oregon at a competitive price and to provide great customer service in that delivery.
In the late 1950's the bank expanded, opening branches in Heppner and Ione. Shortly after that, the bank changed its name to the Bank of Eastern Oregon and headquarters moved to Heppner, Oregon. Branches were opened in Condon in 1995; Irrigon in 1999; and Boardman in 2000, as the bank positioned itself to remain an independent community bank entering the 21st Century.
Today BEO Bancorp is the holding company for Bank of Eastern Oregon, which operates 13 branches and six loan production offices in twelve eastern Oregon and one eastern Washington counties. Branches are located in Arlington, Ione, Heppner, Condon, Irrigon, Boardman, Burns, John Day, Prairie City, Fossil, Moro, Enterprise, and Pasco; loan production offices are located in Hermiston, Ontario, Pendleton, Island City, Lakeview and Madras. Bank of Eastern Oregon also operates a mortgage division, and operates a branch under the name of Bank of Eastern Washington.
