American Heritage National Bank has constructed the Midwest's, and possibly the country's largest log bank (32,000 square feet). The main shell of the bank is constructed of three miles of lodge-pole pine cut at elevations above 9,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Each log was individually hand-peeled, notched and assembled in Colorado. Then the structure was disassembled, the logs numbered, loaded on trucks and transported to Minnesota to be reassembled. In 1947, People's National Bank purchased The Bank of Long Prairie. In 1995, the bank s name was changed to American Heritage National Bank. In 1999, a second banking office made of logs was erected on the East Side of St. Cloud, Minn. This office became American Heritage's fourth banking office.
