About

First Bank & Trust is one of South Dakota's largest family- and employee-owned banks, with 22 locations in 17 towns in South Dakota and Minnesota.

We are proud to be a family- and employee-owned community bank. Our 700+ employees take pride in our Be the 1 Service Culture principles - and it shows!
