Biography/HistoryThough this photograph is somewhat damaged, it shows the Bismarck building that will be purchased to house the Bank of North Dakota in 1919. Shortly after this picture was taken, the state put a new sign over the "Missouri Valley Motor Co." sign. The new sign read "Bank of North Dakota." The state-owned bank was an NPL program designed to provide low-interest loans to farmers (rural credit bank.) It was also the depository bank for city, county, and state funds. School districts also deposited their funds in the bank. Though the bond sale to capitalize the Bank of North Dakota failed, the deposits provided the bank with enough capital (money) to make loans at 6% interest.
