The name says it all – First Bank is Harvey County’s first and oldest bank, established in 1873.  From the Wild West days of Newton’s formation, through financial downturns, a fire, and multiple robberies, First Bank has remained dedicated to true community banking and focused on treating customers with fairness and respect.  Our customers are also our friends, neighbors, and co-workers, so First Bank officers and employees work hard every day to make sure that they know how much they are valued.

A full-service community bank, First Bank offers a wide range of deposit and loan services for consumers and businesses, as well as free online, mobile wallet and mobile banking options.  As Harvey County’s leading mortgage lender for over 25 years, First Bank specializes in real estate financing.  All of First Bank’s credit and management decisions are made locally and our efforts to go the extra mile whenever necessary sets us apart from other banks.

Through strong financial giving and employee volunteerism, First Bank continues to lend support to area schools, churches and non-profit organizations.  On any given day the community will find First Bank employees shredding documents, cooking 2000 hot dogs for its annual appreciation event, serving on a large number of boards, providing gifts to teachers, presenting in classrooms or delivering Meals on Wheels.  The bank also raises funds year round for Harvey County United Way and its Walking Tacos are famous for miles around!  It goes back to our fundamental belief that banking isn’t about money.  It’s about people, and making a difference whenever we can.  First Bank is committed to Harvey County and the people who live here…we are your community bank for every generation.

First Bank is a state-chartered bank, a member FDIC, and a proud member of the Newton Area Chamber of Commerce.
