Pine River State Bank



The original Bank Charter was issued to Farmers State Bank of Guthrie in Guthrie, MN. Guthrie Township is located in Hubbard County.

Charter issued to Guthrie


The population of Guthrie Township had dropped tremendously by the year 1935. At the same time, the town of Pine River was without a bank. The owners of Farmers State Bank of Guthrie applied to the State to move the bank charter to Pine River and changed the name to Pine River State Bank. The bank opened their doors in Pine River in November 1935.
