Community Counts

Our Communities

For over ninety years, First Bank has played an important role in the life of the communities we serve. Since we opened our doors as The Farmers State Bank back in 1908, we have been interested in serving our loyal customers as well as serving our communities. We are proud to be located in the heart of Kansas and we are committed to serving the residents and businesses of Rice County. We would love to have you come visit any one of our three locations in Sterling, Lyons and Chase.



Sterling, originally called Peace, definitely lives up to its early name. The community of approximately 2,500 is home to Sterling College, a four-year Christian university, in addition to the Sterling High School Black Bears. As a Main Street city since 1997, Sterling is actively working to remain vital and progressive. First Bank is located in the downtown business district at 128 South Broadway.



Lyons is the County seat of Rice County and the home of the Lyons High School Lions. The First Bank branch in Lyons is located at 201 East Avenue South. The building’s location is the town’s charming square whose focal point is the lovely brick courthouse.

Located directly south of the bank is Coronado Quivira Museum. This is a must-see attraction which traces the rich and colorful history of Rice County.



The small community of Chase is located eight miles west of Lyons on Highway 56. The town’s major industry is the Cal-Maine Foods egg processing plant. The First Bank branch of Chase is located at 509 Main Street.
