Our bank is locally owned and operated by folks with deep roots in the communities we serve. Our daily commitment is to meet the unique needs of our neighbors, guided by the traditional values we all share.
Why is locally owned important? It means:
- You’ll get a quicker decision regarding your banking needs.
- You won’t need to explain the challenges you face in ranching, farming or starting a business. We get it.
- Your money stays local – every loan we make is an investment in you, your family or your neighbors.
After all, loan decisions should be based on you and not a complex risk formula from an out-of-state headquarters. We’ll look for good reasons to say “Yes” for your business loan, home mortgage and other banking services.
We’ve seen Colorado grow and we’re proud to have played a part in the prosperity of the state’s Arkansas Valley and Front Range. Our bank has grown right along with you, from our first location in Las Animas in 1901 and then into six more communities: La Junta, Monument, Fowler, Ordway, Rocky Ford and, coming soon, Flying Horse in Colorado Springs.
We’ve invested in the people and businesses in these communities and we continue to share a stake in their success. This investment is more than financial. Our team members give their time and expertise to many local organizations that share our vision of local progress and success – from chambers of commerce, to 4-H clubs to school boards and more.
Most important, whether you’re a retiree or a first-time home buyer, whether you own a ranch, agri-business or local shop, you’ll know our financial team members by name. And we’ll know you as a neighbor, not an account number.
First National Bank is here to serve you.
