Union National Bank
Union National Bank began
its existence in Minot in 1905, in the front of the Jacobson Hardware building.
The second floor was home to Offices and the Post Office. The ground floor
housed Martin Jacobson’s Hardware Store. In 1923 the building, bank included
was gutted by fire. Within eight months a new building had been erected on the
northeast corner of Main Street and Central Avenue, the same locationas the old building . Union National Bank
remained at that location until 1963 when they built a new bank at 17 First
Avenue SW. The bank is in the same location but became First Bank and is now
known as US Bank. US Bank also has drive through tellers on South Broadway.
