The first McIntosh County Bank was established in 1911 in Danzig, North Dakota as Farmers State Bank. During the Great Depression deposits into the bank fell. In the bank's early years, they could take in $125,000 in deposits, but during the Depression that fell to $25,000 as the community of Danzig fell into decline. The shareholders made the decision to move the bank's location to Zeeland, North Dakota in 1934. In 1940 the name of the bank was changed to McIntosh County Bank and its main branch was moved to Ashley, North Dakota, with the Zeeland location remaining a branch. It is still located and operational in its original 1930's building.
