Our History

The present Farmers & Merchants (F&M) Bank was organized in 1930 – it operates under a state charter granted in 1911 to a bank of the same name.  The first office of F&M Bank was originally located at 1005 Superior Avenue, the Bank has since added two additional buildings to its Main Office.

In 1954 the Bank introduced the first drive-thru banking services in Western Wisconsin. The original drive-thru teller window still exists as part of our Main office.  

In the early 1960’s the Bank opened its second location in Warrens, WI. This location operated until December 2014, at which time the building was donated to the Village of Warrens.

The Convenience Center, originally called the Motor Bank, was opened in 1980. In 1992 the Convenience Center was expanded when Frederick (Freddie) Mueller passed away and the Blacksmith Shop was removed. The Blacksmith Shop existed in the location of the drive-thru ATM from 1919 to 1992.

Our North Tomah Branch was opened in 2001.

The Main Office has undergone several renovations/remodelings, with the last taking place in 2007. During our latest remodel, the main floor was completely gutted and included a switch in Superior Avenue entrance locations.
