City History

The town is named after Robert Banks.  The Government required a submission of two names for the Post Office and St Michaels and Banks were submitted.  The Government picked Banks because it was shorter.  The early settlers came to Banks around 1840 and the first bank was built in 1909.  In 1920, 100 Japanese families came and raised strawberries.  In 1921 the town of Banks was incorporated and there was a population of 75.

The citizens of Banks are a diverse group of people. Farmers, loggers, merchants, retirees and professionals from all walks of life can be found in Banks.  Agriculture and the timber industry are the prime industry of Banks but many residents commute to jobs in the Portland metropolitan area.  It is truly a small town with a small town atmosphere yet close to the big city.
