American State Bank of Pierre, in the Beginning
In 1976-77 a group of local citizens felt that their banking needs were not being met satisfactorily and began a movement to find investors and start a new bank. American State Bank was officially chartered in November, 1977.
We opened for business in a small mobile home on the site of our present parking lot. A new building was soon erected and served us well until 1995. That year we began a major addition and remodeling project. This venture doubled our space and allowed for more privacy when working with customers.
