Heartland Bank and Trust Company is widely recognized as one of the strongest and most progressive banks in Illinois. We're a locally owned community bank whose roots are right here in the heartland. Getting to know our customers helps us become a better bank, but that alone isn't enough. We are capable of handling diverse customer needs. The phrase "small enough to know you, big enough to serve you" is what Heartland Bank is all about. The Drake family, who came to Central Illinois in 1852, has been in banking for over 80 years. With the third generation of the family taking an active role in the banking business, we continue this tradition.
