We invite you to join our family of customers.
Founded in 1961, First Bank Kansas was formed as a banking organization in 1961 by Glenn Bramwell at our present day main office located at 235 S Santa Fe in Salina. The R.H. “Dick” Zimmerman family purchased the bank in 1967. The Frank Whitham family purchased the bank in 1981 and later sold to the John Sutherland family in 1983.
Proud to be recognized as a regional community bank, First Bank Kansas has 8 locations in 6 communities. We have Salina covered with 3 convenient locations and are also thankful to serve the communities of Ellsworth, McPherson, Abilene, Lindsborg and Hutchinson. First Bank Kansas is small enough to provide exceptional personal service and make local decisions but large enough to provide the products you want and need.
