Morris Building and Loan of Morris, Illinois, was organized February 27, 1917. The primary purpose of the organization was to encourage thrifty workmen to build and own their own homes at near rent prices. The business was first conducted from the Matteson Ace Hardware store in Morris. Then later they moved to the Hall-Hynds building and made several more moves to different locations, such as the Fessler and Collins Buildings. Space was shared with different businesses until 1959, when the first owned building was built on Jefferson & Wauponsee. In 1981, the property was sold to the City of Morris for the City Hall & Police Department. In that same year, Morris Building & Loan built a new building on Jefferson & Division (Rt. 47), where we are still located today. On April 21, 2008, Morris Building and Loan merged with Harvard Savings Bank, which was acquired by State Bank in August, 2016. In December 2016, First Secure Community Bank acquired Morris Building & Loan. We were making it, once again, a locally owned institution.
