Hays is the largest city in northwestern Kansas, and is home to the Tigers at Fort Hays State University. The town gained its name from Brigadier General Alexander Hays, after the fort, southeast of town, was renamed from Fort Fletcher. Hays became a "boomtown" after the Kansas Pacific Railroad was built and a depot was set up there. Following the closing of the fort, the area became an educational site and is now known as the Fort Hays State Historical Site. Due to it's location on the railroad, many famous individuals surrounding the American Old West lived in Hays including Buffalo Bill Cody, Calamity Jane, and General George Custer. Today it serves as the county seat of Ellis County and is the cultural center of the northwest Kansas region.

Feel the freedom.

When you have a checking account with us, you get a debit card that makes every ATM an Equity Bank ATM. Let’s paint the picture. You’ve got to grab some cash, but you’re far away from any of your bank’s ATMs, so you use the one closest to you. Before you get your cash, the machine will force you to agree to a fee. Some of these ATM fees now average more than $5. Yikes.

Go ahead and accept the fee. When you bank with us, your debit card will block ATM fees from ever showing up in your account. Get a checking account that works for you! Take that, ATM bullies.
