Baker Boyer Bank

Baker Boyer National Bank is a Walla Walla, Washington based financial institution.[2] It opened in 1869, making it the first bank in what would become the State of Washington.[3][4]

It was the first Walla Walla bank to open a branch office. Bank CEO Mark Kajita is the third non-family President and CEO of the organization and was preceded by Baker Boyer's Board Chairman, Megan Clubb,[5] a descendant of bank founder Dorsey S. Baker.

In 2010, the bank closed its branch in Weston, Washington.[6]
