Welcome to Western National Bank! We are a community bank that is family owned and operated with 11 locations throughout Nebraska and Kansas.

On January 1, 2009, Western National Bank was born. On this date we purchased First National Bank of Summerfield from Farmers Bank of Cook in Summerfield, KS.

Five years later on January 1, 2014, the State Bank of Chester, NE was purchased by the holding company and merged into Western National Bank. After opening our Chester location, our headquarters were moved to Chester and our Summerfield location became a branch.

The following year on September 15, 2015 we opened a brand new stand-alone full service branch in Cairo, NE.

After a few years of operating out of these three locations, the holding company purchased Byron State Bank in Byron, NE and merged into Western National Bank on July 1, 2017.

Exactly 4 years later on July 1, 2021, Mainstreet Bank was purchased, expanding Western National Bank into a total of 11 communities throughout Nebraska and Kansas including (in alphabetical order):

  • Byron, NE
  • Cairo, NE
  • Chester, NE
  • Cook, NE
  • Louisville, NE
  • Peru, NE
  • Summerfield, KS
  • Syracuse, NE
  • Tecumseh, NE
  • Virginia, NE
  • Wymore, NE
  • We also serve customers in Lincoln and Omaha, NE.

We enjoy being a part of these communities and look forward to continuing to provide our present and future customers with the best banking experience possible.
