Welcome to your hometown bank!

Message from the President


This year we are proud to celebrate our 125th anniversary, and our longevity is due primarily to you, our customer! For that loyalty, we sincerely thank you!

Since we opened our doors in 1888 as Bucyrus Loan and Building Company, we have undergone a few name changes, when, in 1937, our name was changed to First Federal Savings and Loan. Finally, in 2001, we became First Federal Community Bank of Bucyrus, which better reflects the full array of services we offer today.

Through this time, there have been many domestic and world events that have made success and growth in any industry challenging, not the least of which is our banking environment. There have been two World Wars, Vietnam, the Korean Conflict, Desert Storm, and the War on Terror, among other isolated conflicts that have affected us from a global perspective.

There was the Great Depression in the '20's and '30's, caused by the stock market crash in 1929, leading to the creation of the New Deal. This helped to constitute the Social Security Act (1935), as well as the Securities Exchange Act of 1933. More recently, there was the crash of the stock market in 2008, caused by many things, not the least of which was the fraud existent in the housing market.

There have also been times of great growth and prosperity, including the Baby Boom following World War II, the end of Communism in the Soviet Union, a movement towards a Global Economy, and the recovery of our domestic economy.

As you can see, we as Americans have experienced many setbacks, only to learn from them, adapt, grow and thrive as a society.

We at First Federal have felt the same ebbs and flow of the global and domestic environments, and have continued to thrive, in spite of these events, largely because of the faith and trust you place in us every day. Banking has changed dramatically over the last 125 years, but one thing has not changed, nor will it ever…our dedication and commitment to the communities we serve, and our commitment to remaining in these communities as a locally owned, locally operated financial institution. We will continue to earn your trust and faith…every day for the next 125 years.

Thank you, and if you ever have any questions or concerns, please stop in and see us! We are here for you!
