Oostburg State Bank Milestones
Welcome to Oostburg, a Small Town on the Grow.
In Egyptian mythology, a phoenix rises from the ashes to begin life anew. The story of Oostburg has a very similar beginning. In 1847, a propeller ship called the Phoenix sailed the waters of Lake Michigan carrying Dutch settlers to their new home. On Nov. 21, 1847 tragedy struck the Phoenix when it caught fire five miles from shore just south of Sheboygan.
This is the story of the birth of Oostburg, the town that rose from the ashes of the Phoenix. While many lives were lost, those Dutch settlers who made it to land decided to call this new place, home. Named after a similarly small town in the Netherlands, Oostburg proved to be a great place for these settlers.
The founding Dutch settlers were an industrious people, who valued family and community. They built Oostburg out of nothing, and in 1909 it was incorporated with a population of around 300 people. Today, the Oostburg area of Sheboygan County — which includes Cedar Grove, Gibbsville, Hingham, Lima and the Town of Wilson — is one of the fastest growing areas in the state of Wisconsin.
While the Village of Oostburg will probably never grow to be what anyone would call a booming metropolis, it is a great place to live, run a business and raise a family – with excellent schools, businesses, library system, family-friendly events and more. As a community we’re down to earth, kind to our neighbors, helpful and proud of our heritage. The people of Oostburg are hardworking, and our locally-based businesses produce quality products for customers all over the world.
And if you look carefully, you’ll find little reminders of our Dutch heritage – including wooden shoes, small windmills and spring gardens filled with tulips in bloom. We’ve been a part of Oostburg since the beginning.
Our Board of Directors and employees are directly involved with our local schools, churches, and volunteer organizations. We proudly support local families and businesses by providing access to simple and honest banking and lending solutions.
We are fiercely independent, locally owned, and we are proud to call Oostburg, home.
