Learn about First National Bank in Lincoln and Beatrice

First National Bank opened its doors in the Lincoln market in August of 2000 as a loan production office. In July 2002, the Downtown retail branch opened at 13th & N as the first branch in Lincoln. We now have four additional locations including the Downtown Drive-Thru (14th & L); the SouthPointe Branch (27th & Pine Lake); Northern Lights (84th and Holdrege); and the Prairie Lake Branch (87th & Hwy 2). In Beatrice, First National acquired the First Security Bank and First Security Savings in April, 1983. These institutions were consolidated in 1987, and on May 31, 1988, Beatrice became a branch of First National Bank of Omaha.

At First National Bank, we offer personalized communication, service and attention to help our customers meet their banking needs. We are perceived as a small community bank in Lincoln, and we are proud of our employee involvement in the community. We continue to be an active participant and corporate supporter of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development.
