Taking Care of Customers since 1927

Now that's forward thinking

Building the Future. Celebrating Our Past.

We got our start as a small business, a small bank in a small town, in 1927. Our founder, A. C.

With locations across North Dakota and Minnesota, our highest priority is the prosperity of our customers and our communities.
