Our Roots and Banking History
Pinnacle Bank is known in the communities we serve for our strength, stability, service, and values. It's been that way since our beginning in Palmer, Nebraska.
During the Great Depression, Palmer's only bank closed. So, brothers George and Tom Dinsdale, along with some friends, decided to do something to help their community.
Roy and Jack, George's sons, first started expanding their family-owned bank in 1959 when they purchased the bank in Neligh, Nebraska.
Roy and Jack continued our bank’s legacy of expansion, purchasing banks across rural markets throughout neighboring states, including Wyoming.
The Dinsdale family purchased Fort Lupton State Bank and entered the Colorado market for the first time.
In 2000, the Dinsdales purchased Western State Bank in Gallup, New Mexico. This marked our entry into the New Mexico area.
In 2020, we opened our first branch in Prescott, Arizona, marking our 8th state. We've since opened two additional Loan Production Offices, in Flagstaff and Scottsdale, Arizona.
