1915 · Home of the Federal Reserve Bank for the Ninth District

Age 1

The first building for the Federal Reserve bank in Minneapolis was completed in 1915 and was a peculiar structure. It had no windows on the lower walls close to the street and later, a small skyscraper was added to the top. It was created to serve the states of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and the northern parts of Wisconsin and Michigan. Even though it covers a wide area, it serves the smallest population base of the entire reserve system. Today the Federal Reserve is housed in three buildings that are housed a few blocks away from each other.

Age 2

Jeannette Pickering Rankin became the first woman to hold a federal office position in the House of Representatives, and remains the only woman elected to Congress by Montana.

Age 23

The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
