    Growing with the Community

    In 1883, when Central Bank of Sedalia was organized, Sedalia was a thriving community of approximately 10,000 people. Sedalia served as the convergence of several major railroads turning the city into the focus of trade for central Missouri, leading to its development as a manufacturing center.

    It was this unique feature of the community that helped our bank to grow and prosper as well. We continued to add new locations throughout the area as well as strengthen our offering to all our customers.

    In 1992, we affiliated with Central Bancompany, a holding company with over $10.7 billion in assets. More important, however, was Central Bancompany’s strong history serving Missouri communities. With their help we’ve been able to expand our products and services while remaining true to local decision-making.

    In 2015, we changed our name from Third National Bank to Central Bank of Sedalia. The update to our name strengthens the connection to other local banks in the Central Bank family. this uniformity reflects our ongoing commitment to technology and convenience for our customers.

    As we move forward, we will continue to serve the community with the same service commitment that our customers have grown accustomed to.
