Founded in 1910, in Jasper, Indiana by a group of German-American business leaders. The community's heritage gave the bank its name. Initially, the bank had only two employees, 57 shareholders, and $40,000 in capital. For 30 years, the bank's offices were located in one-half of the first floor of a commercial building. However, in the 1940s, the bank expanded and bought the building it continues to occupy today.
