The bank originated in 1968 as a single bank in Sheridan, Wyoming, and incorporated in Montana in 1971. As of 2006, the bank had expanded to 49 branches with 130 ATMs in Montana and Wyoming.

In 1984, the company entered into a franchise agreement with First Interstate Bancorp, a multi-state bank holding company headquartered in Los Angeles, California, to use the First Interstate Bank name and logo. In 1996, when First Interstate Bancorp was split up, selling its Midwestern USA branches to St. Louis based Boatmen's Bancshares, which set the stage for it remaining west coast operations to be purchased by and merged into Wells Fargo. The Montana organization successfully negotiated to retain the well known First Interstate name and logo.
