Family Owned and Community Focused
The communities we’re a part of make us who we are. That started back in 1900 and continues today.
As one of the oldest banks in Colorado, our first charter was issued in Ft. Lupton. While the name of the bank may have changed throughout the years, our genuine approach has always been the same.
In 1978, we became a part of a larger family of local banks started by the Dinsdale family during the Great Depression. The economic hardships took their toll on the people and the banks in Palmer, Nebraska. So brothers George and Tom Dinsdale, along with some friends, decided to do something. They pulled their resources together to open a bank for their community.
They ran their bank much like they ran their farms, which helped them earn people’s trust. So it didn’t take long before they were ready to reach out to other towns and states, including Colorado.
Today, Bank of Colorado serves communities throughout the Eastern Plains, the Front Range, the Western Slope and the Four Corners Region. Although we’ve grown, we still greet you by name and answer our calls in person. We even make the latest conveniences available, like online and mobile banking. But many of our customers still prefer to stop by one of our branches and talk to the bankers they’ve known all their lives.
Banking has changed a lot over the years, but you’ll find our people are still cut from the same cloth as our founders. We’re not just a bank in Colorado. We’re Bank of Colorado.
