A Brief History
Horicon Bank was founded in 1896 by Daniel C. Van Brunt, the inventor of the grain drill. His manufacturing company was sold in 1911 to Deere & Company, which continues to operate the factory as John Deere Horicon Works, producing consumer products including lawn tractors.
Our home office building in Horicon was constructed in 1915, and it is the center of our bank administration. We have added several locations to our bank in recent years; Iron Ridge and Neosho in 1985, Beaver Dam in 1990, Appleton and Ripon in 1998, West Bend in 1999, the Beaver Dam Recheks in 2004, Fond du Lac Eastside in 2005, Oshkosh in 2008, the Mayville Piggly Wiggly and Ripon Webster's Marketplace in 2009, Beaver Dam Piggly Wiggly in 2011, Green Lake in 2014 and Fond du lac Westside in 2015.
For more than 120 years, Horicon Bank has built a foundation of beneficial relationships with our customers. In the same way animals and plants thrive together in the internationally famous Horicon Marsh - we are linked to the growth and prosperity of the families and businesses in our communities. Horicon Bank is "the Natural Choice."
About Our Logo
Horicon Marsh is a focal point for migratory birds in Wisconsin, which is why we chose the Canada goose for our logo. It's a very strong bird with a tremendous range, yet very captivating and organized in flight. The Canada goose builds lifelong relationships and so do we.
Due to our proximity to one of the world's greatest wetlands and home to hundreds of bird species, Horicon Bank has been closely branded with the Horicon Marsh. Our logo displays a goose flying at sunset and all of our lobbies feature a welcome desk area displaying plants reminding visitors of the Horicon Marsh.
Horicon Bank has taken steps internally to be more environmentally friendly and energy efficient. Our Fond du Lac and Oshkosh offices are two of the few geothermal bank buildings in the Midwest.
Horicon Bank is one of a few banks designated as "Eco-Conscious" by Sustain Link.
Here are links to some local environmentally focused organizations.
Thousands of visitors come to the Horicon Marsh every year. The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is a place to learn and appreciate the rich natural resources we have in our area. There is a gift shop, auditorium, classrooms and trails to help introduce this great natural resource. Come visit and support this important institution.
The Friends of Dodge County Parks was originally formed in 1985 as Friends of the Recreational Trail, Inc. (FORT) in order to raise funds and promote development of the Wild Goose Trail in Dodge County. Now the Friends are able to support a broader focus of other recreational pursuits and facilities in Dodge County.
Geothermal energy uses no fossil fuels, but utilizes the earth’s constant temperature to heat or cool a building.
Horicon Bank places an emphasis on health and wellness in our workplace and our communities. Since 2012, we have been organizing the Horicon Bank 5K Run/Walk for Wellness in our Fond du Lac community to benefit the National Alliance on Mental Health. We have also created wellness challenges to encourage healthy lifestyles among our team members. Horicon Bank is also a member of Well City Fond du Lac - an organization that engages entire business communities to improve the health and well-being of their workforce.
