History

Founded in 1920 by Latt Maxcy and a group of local businessmen, Citizens Bank & Trust has remained a family-owned bank from the very beginning. John Maxcy, Latt’s brother, managed CB&T for nearly five decades. Today, Latt’s grandchildren continue the family tradition of careful decision making to carry the bank securely into the future.

For the first 78 years, Citizens Bank & Trust helped grow and develop the area around Frostproof, Florida. The original Frostproof office is still in use and remains a proud part of downtown Frostproof to this day. You can even drop by and see the first safe used for deposits over 90 years ago!

Citizens Bank & Trust is Polk County’s true community bank having grown from their first office in Frostproof to thirteen locations countywide; serving the communities of Auburndale, Bartow, Dundee, Frostproof, Ft. Meade, Haines City, Lakeland, Lake Wales and Winter Haven.

Stability, commitment and community focus are a few of the reasons Citizens Bank & Trust has thrived for over 90 years.
