Biography/HistoryGeorge H. Fairchild was an important pioneer of banking and insurance interests in early Bismarck. During the 1870s, when the railroad camp of Edwinton was renamed Bismarck, Ohio-born George H. Fairchild was present to add an important foundation to the future territorial and state capital. That foundation was banking. Along with another famous Bismarck resident, Dr. Henry Porter, Fairchild established the First National Bank branch in the small prairie village.
