Our History

In 1898, F.A. Vaniman accomplished a long-time goal of opening his own bank. That bank was Peoples State Bank, located at 101 South Main in downtown McPherson. That bank, now known as Peoples Bank and Trust, is still located at the same location 124 years later!  

We recognize that banking changes quickly, and we are ready to meet those changes with solutions that allow you to bank anytime, anywhere. 

With 16 locations in central Kansas, Peoples Bank and Trust has become one of the strongest banks in Kansas. With over $975 million in assets, we are a leader in commercial business, small business, and real estate lending.

You will find the team at Peoples Bank and Trust cheering on our local teams, helping at community festivals, and volunteering with local organizations, as we strive to make the greatest impact on the communities we serve.  We do this by being honest, working hard, having vision, and building relationships. 

At Peoples Bank and Trust -- Relationships Matter.
