We love the Quad Cities. Since 1961 it has been our home. Even though over 50 years have elapsed from the time we first broke ground for our Milan facility, we have remained a locally owned and operated bank, committed to the growth and wellbeing of this area and the people who make it so special.

Our Mission Statement
At Blackhawk Bank & Trust we are very cognizant of both our ethical and financial commitment to our customers, employees and shareholders. Therefore, we adhere to a simple mission statement which forms the basis of our business plan: “To serve the needs of our customers, employees and shareholders while maintaining local ownership.” We Are Safe, Solid And Secure.
