Taking Care of Our 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.
