Dream First Bank

Our History

In February 1906, Dream First Bank (Formerly First National Bank of Syracuse) was chartered and opened for business, serving Hamilton County through good times and bad. The bank grew throughout the years, playing a key role in growing the community and bringing the dairy industry to southwest Kansas. The bank expanded to Johnson in 1995, Garden City in 2006, Ulysses in 2016, and Hugoton in 2022.

In September 2022, we changed our name to Dream First Bank! In 2023, we then expanded and gained four more branch locations, in Elkhart, Rolla, Arlington, and Attica. 

For more than 100 years in the community, we have pursued a desire to help our agricultural neighbors be successful year to year. From the roaring of the 1920s to the lows of the Great Depression, our bank doors stayed open and remained steadfast in our dream to truly improve every life we touched. As we have evolved over the years and seen a lot of change, both inside our walls and across the country, we are pleased to offer the same great service and personal touch to every customer.
