Dundee Bank

Sounds like Dundee Bank is taking over Benson's Metropolitan Building & Loan:

Dundee Bank is taking over a Benson institution that lasted decades without checking accounts or even an ATM

Steve Jordon / World-Herald staff writer wrote:This summer, Dundee Bank will take over Metropolitan’s 200 member accounts and dozen home loans and begin renovating the 1957-vintage office at 2739 N. 61st St.

Dundee Bank, 5015 Underwood Ave., also will open a branch in October or November in the reviving Blackstone neighborhood, at 302 S. 38th St., the former McFoster’s Natural Kind Cafe and, before that, a White Rose Oil Co. gas station.

“Dundee, Blackstone and Benson — three iconic Omaha neighborhoods,” said Jeff Royal, president of Dundee Bank, which actually is a branch of Security State Bank of Ansley, Nebraska.

By early 2017, Dundee Bank’s new, full-service Benson branch will reopen with banking products that Metropolitan has never offered, including checking accounts, certificates of deposit, debit cards, commercial loans and — that newfangled thing — an automatic teller machine.

I remember one time the building and loan owner's uncle lost about $8000 while taking a deposit to the bank. This old rich guy found the found the money and hit it from them. When the bank examiner discovered the lost deposit, the owner feared he would lose his family and his business. He contemplated suicide but while on the bridge, a kind old angel came to the rescue...oh wait...different story.
