A History of Strength, Growth and Commitment

First National Bank Northeast was established in 1902, as the First National Bank of Lyons, located in the town of Lyons, Nebraska. In 1974 the current ownership families of Dunlap, Acklie and Hilt combined to purchase the institution from the Langemeier family, etal., adding considerable banking experience and financial strength to the institution. With vision and growth in mind, the bank changed its name to First National Bank Northeast, effective in July of 1993.

Since the humble beginnings as an independent bank in Lyons, the assets of the bank have grown to the current asset base. From the start in Lyons, financial services have been expanded to include the communities of Uehling, Tekamah, Hooper, Oakland, Fremont, Hartington and Ceresco.

First National Bank Northeast has been dedicated to the local rural communities since its original charter all the way through the ownership of the Dunlap-Acklie-Hilt families. The bank is dedicated to the communities which we have the privilege of serving and continues to provide basic banking services to the people of these communities. The area is rural in nature, with agriculture and the proceeds from its products the lifeblood of the rural communities.

With this agrarian lifeblood, First National Bank Northeast specializes in agricultural financing including loans for livestock, crop financing, equipment and real estate purchase and development. Because of this strong agricultural sector, commercial business has grown and is also supported and financed by our institution. It is our intent to support our communities, their people and the businesses in the community when feasible. We are inordinately proud of our home towns; their businesses, schools, organizations, churches and families.

Our staff of first-rate-employees are professional, yet caring in a home town way. They care about your needs, as well as the needs and concerns of your family. We have great loyalty from our staff to the customers and vice-a-versa. This truly defines our home town commitment.... People caring about people!
