Respect, dedication among values that helped North American State Bank reach 125th
WILLMAR — Christopher Borgerding decided he wanted to go into business for himself rather than work in his family’s bank in Melrose.
The young German arrived in Belgrade to open a new bank on May 17, 1889.
Next month, the bank he founded, North American State Bank, will celebrate 125 years in business.
The bank will host a community open house from noon to 3 p.m. at its Belgrade location on May 17.
