Kearney Completes Tri-City Operations

Heritage Bank wanted to be the first independently owned bank to be in all three cities: Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney. Many of the bank’s business clients had operations in all three communities, so providing convenient banking solutions with one bank in all those communities just made sense. We applied for a new branch charter and opened in the former Wells Fargo Drive-in bank facility in downtown Kearney in September 2002. We soon began looking for possible new building sites in central or north Kearney. By January 2005 we had purchased the Curtis Building and remodeled the west end of the building to suit our needs. The remainder of the building has been developed as a condominium project. The east end is owned by Contryman & Associates. The north side has recently been remodeled and leased to the State of Nebraska. Rodney M. Peters serves as President of Heritage Bank Kearney. Heritage Group feels confident that the Kearney market holds excellent future growth opportunities.
