The Adventure of Wells Fargo

The name Wells Fargo is forever linked with the image of a six-horse stagecoach thundering across the American West, loaded with gold. The full history - over more than 160 years - is rich in detail, includes great events in America’s history, and is nationwide and international.

Since 1852

From the Gold Rush to the early 20th Century, Wells Fargo earned a reputation of trust by dealing rapidly and responsibly with people’s money and goods, offering both banking and express delivery.

Modern Times

In prosperity, depression and war, even greater post-war prosperity, social changes, and ever faster communications technologies, Wells Fargo’s attention to customers’ business saw it through and brought success.
