Questions
Why did the Bank change its name?
Answers
In September 1883, in this thriving community of farmers and lumbermen, James A. Decker and Armstrong Taylor established and incorporated the Bank of Baldwin. A national charter request was granted in October 1911, and with that came a new name—The First National Bank of Baldwin. Since the nineteenth century, the original banking office has been in three locations, all within three blocks of the original site.

Today, with locations in Baldwin, Spring Valley, Plum City, Balsam Lake, Clear Lake and our newest full-service location coming to Chippewa Falls on March 1, we felt it was time to change our name, to better reflect our growth within and beyond the Baldwin community.
Questions
Was the Bank acquired or sold?
Answers
Absolutely not. The Bank has not been acquired or merged with any other bank; it is under the same ownership and management as it was. We continue to be a community focused, local bank.
Questions

Questions
Will I receive a new debit and credit card?
Answers
Customers will be receiving new debit and credit cards reflecting our new name, logo and branding in early February. You will receive the same number as you have today, using the same PIN number you’ve established. New cards will have new expiration dates and new 3-CVV security codes. Cardholders should activate new cards upon receipt and no later than March 31, 2023.
