Centinel Bank is Taos’ Community Bank

We are a full-service bank with three convenient locations, dedicated to local banking for this community we call home. Watch our video to learn more about Centinel Bank of Taos. 

On March 1, 1969, Centinel Bank of Taos opened for business, dedicated to serving all the people, cultures, and languages of the Taos County community. The Centinel Bank story is one of family, hard work and dedication. Half a century after it was founded, it remains a strong, stable and secure financial institution, serving all of Taos County.

What started as one man’s mission for equal access to financial services in his rural New Mexico hometown, now is a leader among the nation’s financial institutions, Centinel Bank of Taos.

Centinel Bank is Taos County’s only locally owned and operated community bank. It was founded here, remains focused here and is committed to helping the people of Taos succeed.

Featured Artist

The Centinel Bank featured artist, for June and July, is Leigh Gusterson. 

Leigh’s paintings are depictions of the landscape, peppered with crumbling adobes, old trucks, horses and sheep, but the joy and love is expressed in her use of vibrant colors, her loose, energetic brushstrokes, and the swaying lines and forms which lend a sense of movement to her compositions. Stop by Centinel Bank’s main branch to see her work or visit her gallery, Light Mountain Gallery in Peñasco, NM.
