In 1998, ATBancorp acquired the Cuba City State Bank in Cuba City and Hazel Green, WI. ATBancorp announced the expansion of services in Wisconsin with a new office in Lancaster in 2001. All three Wisconsin offices were united under the new name of American Bank & Trust, WI. The year 2002 brought added growth with an office in Fennimore, WI. In July 2006, American Bank’s newest office opened in Platteville, WI.
