UCB History

UCB History

With its origin dating back to 1907, United Community Bank (UCB) has grown to an approximately $2.2 billion dollar institution known as "The Leader of Community Banking" throughout downstate Illinois.

Our story began in 1973 when a local group, led by Robert Narmont, invested in Farmer's State Bank in Greenfield, IL. Their goal was to deliver the ultimate in customer service and to continue to welcome other banks in central, southern and western Illinois into the United Community Bank group. United Community Bancorp, Inc. now operates in the twelve Illinois counties of Adams, Brown, Greene, Hancock, Lincoln, Logan, McClean, McDonough, Macoupin, Pike, Sangamon and Scott; and Marion County in Missouri.
