Our name may be new, but our story is still the same. Our Nebraska roots trace back to 1882, when our bank was initially formed under the name “The First National Bank of Wahoo.” In 1992, we merged with our sister banks in Sterling and Burchard. In 2010, we purchased First National Bank and Trust of Syracuse. Through these years of growth, we’ve always managed to keep our focus the same: supporting our communities through lending, employment and community service.
In 2013, we changed our name to “FirstBank of Nebraska” to reflect the many communities we serve across the state. As a well-capitalized, long-standing bank with more than $200 million in total assets, we are proud to provide our communities with the finances they need to continue to thrive today and for years to come.
