Union Bank & Trust is in its second century of service, having been founded in 1917. The Bank was originally known as the Farmer’s State Bank, one of many “Farmer’s State Banks” located throughout the Mid-West. The name was changed to Union Bank in 1935, and in 1959, following the addition of trust powers, became Union Bank & Trust Company. The Bank was purchased in 1965 by the Dunlap family (a familiar name in Nebraska banking), which still owns and manages the Bank. Union Bank & Trust is currently the fourth largest bank headquartered in Nebraska, with deposits in excess of $4 billion and nearly 185,000 customer accounts.
