From the Gold Rush to the early 20th Century, through prosperity, depression and war, Wells Fargo earned a reputation of trust due to its attention and loyalty to customers.

In 1852, Henry Wells and William Fargo founded Wells, Fargo & Co. The new company offered banking (buying gold and selling paper bank drafts as good as gold) and express (rapid delivery of the gold and anything else valuable).

In the 1980s Wells Fargo expanded into a state-wide bank and became the seventh largest bank in the nation — and launched its online service.

In the 1990s Wells Fargo returned to its historic territory throughout the Western, Midwestern, and Eastern states.

After the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869, Wells Fargo increasingly rode the rails.

In 1888, after expanding along the new steel network across the Northeast into New York, Wells Fargo became the country’s first nationwide express company.

Wells Fargo agents in towns large and small offered basic financial services like money orders, travelers checks, and transfer of funds by telegraph.

Always, though, wherever there was mining, from Alaska to Arizona, Wells Fargo guarded the gold.

Expanding in 1923 to two marbled banking halls, Wells Fargo was a “banker’s bank” that served the entire west.
