About First National Bank

First National Bank has a history of doing what's right for our customers and the communities we serve.

With locations in Nebraska, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Texas, $19 billion in managed assets and nearly 5,000 employees, we haven't lost sight of the foundation on which our success was built.
