Transcription"THE RED RIVER NATIONAL BANK was organized in April, 1881, with a capital of $100, 000. J. L. and E. B. Grandin, of Grandin, and Stephen Gardner, of Hastings, Minn., are among the leading stockholders. Mr. Gardner owns 12, 800 acres of land in this county, and has something over $100, 000 otherwise invested in and about Fargo. The Grandins own about 60, 000 acres of land in this and Traill County, and have other large interests in the valley. The building occupied and owned by this bank is shown elsewhere. It is three stories in height, 25 x 100 feet, costing $25, 000. Its furniture and equipment could not well be improved. L. S. Follett is president, Stephen Gardner, vice president and L. W. Follett, cashier. The directors, in addition to the above, are W. A. Kindred, Geo. A. Putnam, 0. W. Francis, G. W. Mains, and J. G. F. Schneidler. The bank's undivided profits, December 24th, amounted to $12, 458.51, and its surplus to $25, 000; the deposits to $249, 443.01."- text from associated article published in the Northwest Magazine, March 1886, p. 9.
