Humble Beginnings

Formed by five businessmen in 1955 as First Federal Savings and Loan Association, Glacier Bancorp, Inc. began with two employees and $172,000 in deposits from 127 local citizens.


Over the last 65 years we have grown into a family of banks with 17 divisions spanning eight Western states. We still believe community banking, maintaining a community bank's independence, and great people are keys to our long-term success in serving local customers and communities.

The Glacier Bancorp, Inc. headquarters is located in Kalispell, Montana. Other Corporate offices are located in bank branches throughout our footprint.
