BELLE FOURCHE – To better serve its members, the Northern Hills Federal Credit Union (NHFCU) will move into its newly constructed building at the corner of Montana Street and Dakota Avenue, Belle Fourche, in late April.
“The new facility will have two ATMs and two ATMs. There will be more offices and an improved cashier and waiting areas,” said Kip Wagner, site manager.
The Northern Hills Federal Credit Union (NHFCU) was incorporated in October 1950 as the Fort Meade Federal Credit Union. At that time, he only served Fort employees. Meade Veterans Hospital. In 1985, the credit union moved to a facility in Sturgis on Main Street. Around this time, the name was changed to Meade Plus Federal Credit Union, and the scope of membership was expanded to serve other employer groups. In the 1980s the council expanded to Belle Fourche and later to Spearfish and Deadwood.
Together with the four branches, the NHFCU is the 10th largest credit union in South Dakota with assets totaling $127.24 million and providing banking services to approximately 10,000 members.
Today they are known as Northern Hills Federal Credit Union, which serves a large and diverse membership. With nearly 70 years of member-serving experience as a member-owned financial institution.
NHFCU has kept one goal in mind, to help improve the financial situation of each of its members by encouraging saving and borrowing at fair rates.
Wagner said the philosophy that will guide our organization over the next 50 years is that people help people.
The existing building at 504 Grant Street has been sold and will likely be occupied by a retail business.
