In the fall of 1993 The First National Bank in Trinidad opened the Huerfano County Branch in Walsenburg to fill the need for banking services in the area. At the time, people were driving 40 or 50 miles to bank with First National in Trinidad and loan demand was on the rise. First National opened the branch with the commitment to provide positive, progressive and professional banking services with customer satisfaction as the goal. Deposits in the branch were committed to satisfy local loan demand and to contribute toward community growth and development.
Over the past 25 years, the Branch has experienced growth beyond its expectations and has enjoyed watching the community expand and prosper. Changes in banking have afforded the branch an opportunity to provide customers with personal service coupled with high-tech access to their money through online banking. With fourteen full-time staff members, there is always a smiling face ready to help.
Branch President, Keith Varner, invites you to come celebrate at the Customer Appreciation Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Huerfano County Branch, 135 W. Sixth Street in Walsenburg.
