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. Brown had a simple formula for success, “Take care of the customer!” It’s a promise we’ve kept for 90 years and one we intend to stick to. With locations across North Dakota and Minnesota, our highest priority is the prosperity of our customers and our communities.
