Our Story

Serving Our Customers Since 1975

At Banterra, we understand that banking is about relationships. It’s about understanding your goals and being the financial partner you need to help achieve those goals. We knew that in the beginning when we started as a small bank in Ridgway, Illinois in 1975. We know that now as we continue to grow as the largest, locally-owned bank in the region with more than $3 billion in assets.

We have the security and products you expect from big banks, with the local-style, personal service you want in a community bank. Whether you’re a potential or current customer, or one of our valued shareholders, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you. We’re committed to our communities, to you, and to our team members.
