Argentine Federal Savings: Over a Century of Serving Our Community

Argentine Federal Savings, Member FDIC, is a true community savings and loan that exists solely to serve our neighbors in the greater Kansas City area. Since 1906, we have been an integral part of the community providing financial services to generations of families and fellow businesses. Our success, past and future, is driven by service: "We Care" about how every account and loan benefits each neighborhood customer.

Historical Background

In 1906, local business men and women from the city of Argentine (modern day Argentine district in Kansas City, KS) decided to form the Argentine Building and Loan Association at 2303 Metropolitan Avenue- with a total of $460,000 in assets. Officially organized on October 2nd, 1906, the community association served the thriving community surrounding the Kansas City Smelting and Refining Company dubbed “the silver refining capital of the world”. As the years progressed, the savings and loan grew to provide comprehensive financial services to the greater community, and finally settled in the prosperous 1950's at the current Kansas City, KS location at 3004 Strong Avenue. In 1955, the institution was renamed Argentine Savings and Loan. In 1956, Argentine Federal Savings celebrated its semicentennial birthday with $2.5 million in assets. During the first 50 years, Argentine Federal Savings weathered periods of difficulty and prosperity hand-in-hand with the community that we serve. In 1993, the savings and loan was renamed Argentine Federal Savings, and in 2000 opened a branch in Overland Park, KS at 12501 Antioch Road.

From 1906 to today, Argentine Federal Savings continues to grow with the needs of the community guiding our steadfast commitment to service to our neighborhoods, fellow businesses and local organizations. "We Care" about our community and feel that our success is a direct reflection of community progress and well-being. As a mutual savings and loan association, Argentine Federal Savings provides a full range of mortgage loans as well as comprehensive checking and savings/investment accounts to multiple generations of families at our Kansas City, KS and Overland Park, KS locations.
