Our History

Established in 1943, Highland Bank is an independent, family-owned, community bank. Highland Bank developed from the 1995 merger of two community banks chartered in the 1940s:

  • Security Bank Northwest, with offices in St. Michael and Maple Grove.
  • The Highland Bank, with offices in St. Paul and Bloomington.

Since the original merger, Highland purchased Ridgedale State Bank in 2008 adding a fifth branch in Minnetonka.
