Welcome to the Western Illinois Bancshares, Inc. Website!
Western Illinois Bancshares, Inc.,
otherwise known as WIBI, was established in the fall of 2005
when the board of directors of Midwest Bank of Western Illinois
and other local investors bought the bank from its former owner,
Midwest Banc Holdings, Inc. of Melrose Park.
Midwest Bank of Western Illinois, formerly
known as The National Bank of Monmouth established in 1870, had been
purchased in 1992 by the aforementioned Chicago area company and had
its name and charter changed in 1998.
WIBI was established by the purchasing group as a bank
holding company which owns all shares of Midwest Bank of Western
Our 1,004,720 shares of common stock are owned
by fewer than 150 stockholders and are therefore considered
privately held. Anyone
