Created in April 1935 – during the depths of the Great Depression, when banks everywhere were failing- the First National Bank of Wyoming opened its doors. In 1963, bank operations moved to the present modern building. In 1972, the bank switched from a national to a state charter to reduce the cost of doing business and changed the name to Wyoming Bank & Trust Co.

In September 2006, Wyoming Bank merged into Better Banks, strengthening the bank even more and allowing Better Banks to provide customers in the Wyoming area enhanced products and services with multiple locations and ATMs.
