Since 1915, Security State Bank has been focused on the needs of the people in and around Ansley, Nebraska. That’s not just talk.
In our one hundred years of business, we’ve seen two world wars, a Great Depression, punishing tornadoes, relentless droughts, a recent bank industry crisis, and way too many recessions. Plus, a few years where the Huskers didn’t go to a bowl game.
We haven’t just weathered those trying times, we’ve helped our customers get through them, as well. That’s what neighbors do.
Take the 1933 bank panic, for example. To stop customers from making panicked withdrawals and crippling an already shaky bank system, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared a national bank holiday—effectively closing all banks for a few days in order to let the panic pass.
Security State Bank, however, never closed. In fact, we stayed open 24 hours a day during this tumultuous period, serving the needs of our customers and earning us the nickname: “The Bank That Did Not Close.”
We weren’t like all the other banks in 1933. And we’re not like other banks today.
We’d love the opportunity to prove that to you.
