First State Bank of Dalbo - 1914
Cambridge State Bank was originally First State Bank of Dalbo which opened in 1914 with Erick Erickson as president; Elmer V. Erickson, cashier; and Hilding A. Erickson, assistant cashier.
Cambridge State Bank 1933
When the Great Depression hit, many banks failed, but not the First State Bank of Dalbo. In fact, the First State Bank of Dalbo got permission from the state regulators, which was required at the time, to move to Cambridge because so many of the Cambridge banks failed, and there was a need for a new, stronger bank in town. So the Erickson family moved themselves and the bank to Cambridge. The Bank moved into a building on Main Street that was built in 1904, and that had been home to one of the failed banks.
Cambridge State Bank's 40th Anniversary
In 1954, Cambridge State Bank celebrated its 40th Anniversary. Located in front of the bank is a spotlight that was rented just for the event. Several prizes were given away, Washer / Dryer, hunting boots, and a boat motor just to name a few.
Cambridge State Bank's 100th Anniversary
On August 8, 2014, the bank hosted a 100th Anniversary Tent Party, which was well attended by 355 customers and employees. We enjoyed BBQ and fixings provided by Little Piggies Catering, along with great music by Eclectic Entertainment with DJ E.
