History

Our History Runs Deep in North Central Kansas

The story of First National Bank and Trust goes back nearly 140 years, to 1884 in Long Island, Kansas. It was in Long Island where the Culbertson family opened their first bank. For 60 years, the bank served the Long Island community as a trusted banking partner.

 

After World War II, farmers and families in and around Phillipsburg, Kansas needed a reliable banking partner they could count on. The Culbertson family recognized this need, sold their bank in Long Island, purchased the bank in Phillipsburg, and established First National Bank and Trust.

 

Rooted in community and tradition, the Culbertson family returned to Long Island and purchased the bank they started in 1884 to be the first branch of First National Bank and Trust. Since then, three more expansions have taken place in north central Kansas in Logan, Smith Center, and Beloit. What started as one small community bank in 1884 has transformed into five community banks that are dedicated to improving their communities.

 

Built on the foundation of family farming in north central Kansas, First National Bank and Trust has been a valuable resource for its customers for years. From farming to businesses to family finances and more, First National Bank and Trust has been the trusted place to help our neighbors achieve their goals.

 

Today, First National Bank and Trust is equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology and services the financial and banking industry has to offer. These advances allow us to serve our communities to the best of our ability, while remaining a local, community-focused bank. Nearly 140 years ago, First National Bank and Trust was started to help farmers continue to do what they love. Fast forward to today and that mission still stands true, with the added value for many more in our community.
