About FNBO

Welcome to the great big, small bank. For more than 160 years, FNBO has been with our customers, where they are in their financial journey, and maintained our commitment to helping build strong communities. We’re big enough to offer financial strength and small enough to know who we’re protecting.

As one of the largest family-owned and independent banks in the U.S., FNBO offers personal, business, commercial, and wealth solutions with branch, mobile and online banking for checking, loans, mortgages, and more. We’re available whenever and however you need us.

We don’t claim to have been the primary builders of the communities we serve. Many people over the past six generations did that with their hard work, dedication and vision. But we're a local bank that understands and embraces the community’s vision that can make a big difference, and we are firm in our commitment to these principles.

FNBO is proud of our history and today, holds one of the oldest charters in the country. We were founded in 1857 by two brothers – Herman and Augustus Kountze. Though our founders were engaged in the rough-and-tumble business of the pioneers, they created an innovative and forward-looking organization. The Kountze brothers envisioned that their bank would succeed and have a positive impact on the communities they served.

We continue to harbor big dreams for the future of the communities we serve, and we hope you will take the journey with us. After all, it’s what you can expect from the great big, small bank.
