We have good news.During the first quarter of 2014, Longview State Bank and The First National Bank of Ogden will merge to become one bank: Longview Bank. All banking locations and employees will remain as they are today. We will continue to serve you at Ogden, Sidney, St. Joseph, Newman, Villa Grove, Royal, and Camargo. You will continue to do your banking business with the same friendly, professional people at each location.
This merger will make us more efficient, and better able to provide you with a full array of banking services. Longview State Bank customers will have the added benefit of a Trust Department through our Trust staff at the Ogden bank. The resulting bank will continue to be owned and operated by Longview Capital Corporation of Newman, Illinois.
We value your banking relationship. As a true community bank, we value you as members of our rural communities where we all live and work. In the words of our motto, "We belong together."
