In some corners, being called a cow town is a compliment of the highest order. This is one of those corners. Big Timber rose from the Montana plains on the backs of ranchers and farmers. Cattle, sheep, horses, wheat and barley are the driving economic forces here. At American Bank, our products and our approach to service have evolved with this colorful, rural place. Naturally, we do a fair bit of agribusiness lending and real estate lending, alongside more traditional commercial and personal banking. And while we don’t always do it over a cup of coffee and a handshake at Cole’s, the Skillet or the Grand, it almost always starts off that way.
