Historic Cokato

Changing with the times......

Cokato is a Dakota language word that means "in the middle of" or "in the midst of". The area was once the geographic center of a region called "The Big Woods" which stretched from the Mississippi River to what is now the town of Willmar. Being in the middle of this area is how Cokato got it's name.

The first European settlers came to Cokato in 1856. Since its humble beginnings, Cokato has grown into a thriving community. The First National Bank of Cokato (formerly known as Citizens State Bank) opened for business November 2, 1916 with total assets of $970.62. Those of us at First National have enjoyed the privilege of contributing to the success of many of the community's residents and businesses over the years. The First National Bank of Cokato is committed to providing local residents services they can count on. Our staff is here to help you with all your banking needs. We've all come a long way in the last century, and we look forward to growing and changing with you for many years to come....
