History: Bank of American Fork was established in 1913 as The People's State Bank of American Fork. In its early years, the bank found modest success servicing mostly sheep farmers in Utah County. Key to the bank's success was the leadership by Clifford E. Young, the Bank's manager from 1913 until the mid 1950s.
After the stock market crashed in 1929, the Bank survived with the help of Young and other shareholders who sold and mortgaged personal property. In early 1932, Young decided to temporarily close People's State Bank instead of risking a run on the bank, as had happened to many banks across the country. The bank re-opened later that year.
Orville Gunther, a local businessman, had been serving on the Bank's board of directors for several years when, in the early 1960s, he was given the opportunity to purchase controlling interest in the bank, which he did. Soon after, Gunther shortened the name of the bank by dropping "People's State" so that it became known as simply "Bank of American Fork."
Expansion within Utah began in the 1970s when the Bank's second branch was built in Alpine. The 1990s saw full-service branches constructed in Highland, Orem, Lehi, Pleasant Grove and Spanish Fork. With the new century came new branches in the Salt Lake Valley, including locations in Draper, Sandy, Murray and Riverton. Most recently, a Saratoga Springs branch opened in Utah Valley, a Layton branch opened in Davis County, and another branch opened in St. George, bringing the total number of Bank of American Fork branches to 14.
