History of UBT
UBT through the years


The current-day Union Bank & Trust was founded as Farmer’s State Bank.



The bank’s name was changed to Union Bank.



With the addition of trust powers, the name was changed to Union Bank & Trust.



Union Bank & Trust was purchased by the Dunlaps, a long-time Nebraska banking family, and its core principles and culture started to take shape.


2004 – 2006

UBT moved into its new headquarters in 2004 at 70th & Pioneers Boulevard in Lincoln, Nebraska, signaling an exciting time of growth. Our growing Omaha team moved into a similar building in 2005 at 177th & West Center streets in Omaha, Nebraska, demonstrating our commitment to serving this vibrant city. Then in 2006, Union Bank made its first move outside the state of Nebraska, expanding into Bonner Springs, Kansas.
