Mid America Bank & Trust Company was originally founded as The State Bank of Dixon, and opened the doors for business February 6th, 1920 with capital and surplus of $45,000.00. The original officers of the bank were H.E. Rollins, President; P.A. Christeson, Vice President; and D.R. Stevens, Cashier.
This photo (right) was taken in the late 1920's and shows the location where the present Mid America Bank & Trust Company sits today at the corner of 2nd and Elm Street.
The building was purchased from the H.E. Rollins estate in 1954 and has undergone many renovations and additions throughout its history: 1946, 1957, 1967, 1984 and 1996. A major renovation in 1967 added new vaults, a drive-up window, and 3500 square feet to the bank, by encompassing the adjacent insurance agency offices. During this time the assets of the bank grew from $134,000.00 in 1920 to $3,573,000.00 in 1967.
The early 80's brought new ownership and more renovation to The State Bank of Dixon. Controlling interest was purchased by Grover L. Johnson of Pulaski Bancshares, who began a large addition to the bank in 1984, making room for an expanded data processing department, additional offices and our community room.
The next few years brought even more changes to The State Bank of Dixon, not only facility changes, but ownership changes. An addition in 1996 added an expanded lobby, centralized loan department and new drive-up facilities. The entire lobby underwent an update, and for the first time an ATM was installed.
In January of 1998, ownership changed from Pulaski Bancshares to Mid America Banking Corporation.
In September of 1999 we opened our first branch and changed our name to Mid America Bank & Trust Company to unify both locations. Business commenced in our permanent new St. Robert facility on July 31, 2000.
Mid America Bank & Trust Company expanded again when we opened our third office at 960 S. Bishop Ave in Rolla, Missouri on November 1, 2006.
Mid America Bank & Trust Company is proud of our 85+ years of service, and we look forward to serving you.
