About Us

The First National Bank of Wahoo is now… FirstBank of Nebraska!

FirstBank of Nebraska is a locally owned, independent community bank with branches in Wahoo, Syracuse, Sterling and Burchard. As an FDIC-insured bank, we offer a full range of banking products to satisfy the unique needs of individuals, farmers and businesses of all sizes. Our local staff takes pride in getting to know our customers and delivering the highest level of service possible.

We are committed to helping our communities thrive. Whether you’re new to the area or have lived in one of our communities all your life, FirstBank of Nebraska welcomes the opportunity to serve you. By and large, Nebraska communities remain strong thanks to the hard working people who live and work there. We believe in contributing to the future of these communities by investing in you!

Our name may be new, but our story is still the same. Our Nebraska roots trace back to 1882, when our bank was initially formed under the name “The First National Bank of Wahoo.” In 1992, we merged with our sister banks in Sterling and Burchard. In 2010, we purchased First National Bank and Trust of Syracuse. Through these years of growth, we’ve always managed to keep our focus the same: supporting our communities through lending, employment and community service.

In 2013, we changed our name to “FirstBank of Nebraska” to reflect the many communities we serve across the state. As a well-capitalized, long-standing bank with more than $200 million in total assets, we are proud to provide our communities with the finances they need to continue to thrive today and for years to come.
