Our History

Trust Company exterior

The Trust Company was founded on October 1, 1992 in Manhattan, Kansas. A small group of local investors formed an independent, state-chartered, fee-only trust company to provide professional capital management and fiduciary services.

Our history actually goes back even farther, to 1927, when First National Bank of Manhattan began offering trust services. The Trust Company acquired the bank’s trust and fiduciary services in 1992.
