Independence Bank To Open Wolf Point Branch

A notice of application has been filed by Independence Bank to establish a branch office at the Agland Co-op site on the east side of Wolf Point. The official address filed on the application was 603 US Highway 2.

Formerly known as First Security Bank, Independence Bank was founded in 1972 by a group of Havre business owners. They currently have branch locations in Poplar, Glasgow, Malta, Scobey, Plentywood, Havre, Great Falls, Conrad and Shelby.

At press time, Independence Bank Poplar branch president Mike Leinen told the Northern Plains Independent that construction has begun at the Agland complex. Crews were on site Nov. 28 widening the former retail space at the location. Leinen said the tentative opening date is May 1.

Leinen said the deal with Agland was done and the State of Montana was on board for the branch expansion.

The branch will be full service and will feature two drive-up lanes. Leinen said plans for an open house and hiring efforts will be announced as construction efforts shape up.
