Our Roots and Banking History
Pinnacle Bank is known in the communities we serve for our strength, stability, service, and values. It's been that way since our beginning in Palmer, Nebraska.
During the Great Depression, Palmer's only bank closed. So, brothers George and Tom Dinsdale, along with some friends, decided to do something to help their community.
Roy and Jack, George's sons, first started expanding their family-owned bank in 1959 when they purchased the bank in Neligh, Nebraska.
The Dinsdales purchased First State Bank, which had a long history serving the community, and their locations in Keene, Joshua, Cleburne and Burleson. This was Pinnacle Bank’s first expansion into Texas.
Our banks in Texas unified under a single name, Pinnacle Bank, to reflect our connection with Pinnacle Bancorp, Inc.
Pinnacle Bank acquired First Bank and added 6 new locations throughout Johnson, Tarrant and Parker counties, for a total of 12 branches in Texas.
Pinnacle Bancorp purchased Woodhaven National Bank and its eight locations in the Fort Worth area.
In 2020, Pinnacle Bank opened new branches in Granbury and Rio Vista. Our bank network now spans 8 states with 161 branches, including 22 in Texas. We continue to look for opportunities to grow, including opening and remodeling locations throughout our service area.
Today our bank network is still proudly owned and managed by the Dinsdale family. As we grow, one community at a time, we recognize that each has a unique culture and set of needs for us to adapt to. That’s why our decisions are made locally. Banking decisions, as well as how we support our communities beyond our branch walls, are decided by people who are a part of and have a vested interest in the community.
We’re proud to be part of Pinnacle Bancorp. While our bank may have grown out of our hometown – our core values have remained a mainstay at every location. We face the future with confidence knowing we have a firm foundation.
