Centier Museum:
Experience Our History

Centier Bank marks a significant milestone in its corporate history with the opening of the Centier Bank Museum in 2021!

Indiana’s largest private, family-owned bank has a rich 126-year history that takes visitors on an inspiring journey through the decades. Find yourself immersed in the story of the bank’s founder, Henry Schrage, from his immigration to Whiting, Ind., in the mid-1800s, all the way up to today, with the fifth generation of the Schrage family committed to their family's legacy of preserving hometown banking for generations to come.

We are thrilled to open our doors to you, and to provide an intimate look at our Centier Bank family history through old photos, aged artifacts, timeless relics, and more. We look forward to welcoming you to the Centier Bank Museum!
