The year was 1892 and several important events took place in our country. The union added the 44th state called Wyoming, the industrial revolution witnessed the patent on a petrol engine designed by Rudolf Diesel, a new President of the United States was elected with the ticket of Grover Cleveland and Adlai Stevenson and a bank called the Bank of Escanaba opened for business.
In 1971, Northern Michigan Bank & Trust formed the first one bank holding company in the Upper Peninsula. On May 1, 1974 Northern Michigan Corporation opened a new State Bank in Marquette and on April 23, 1975 they received permission to open yet another State Bank in the City of Kingsford.
Today, the Bank of Escanaba is named Northern Michigan Bank & Trust. We have grown to nine locations throughout the Central Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Although our bank officers no longer wear bowler hats and sport splendid gold watch fobs, they take just as meticulous care with your money as their predecessors did with your great grandfather’s.
Few people remember the achievements of the Cleveland administration, but Northern Michigan Bank & Trust, whether in any of our nine locations, will always carry the tradition of service, strength, and financial security.
