About Parshall: Parshall is located just minutes from Lake Sakakawea, it is also on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, and is home to the Paul Broste Rock Museum. The Parshall area offers many outdoor recreational activities including boating, fishing, hunting, bird watching and there are great cultural events to take in throughout the year. In addition to our Parshall bank, we have bank stations in the neighboring communities of Plaza and Makoti. It is not uncommon for our stations to remain open with a welcome smile an additional 15 minutes for a customer who called in and is driving to town from their farm or ranch.  

Community Organizations that we are involved in: Parshall Promoters, Parshall Livable Community Steering Committee, Souris Basin Resource Council, Makoti Threshing Show Committee, Mountrail County Job Development Authority.

What makes our community great: Last fall Parshall residents and community groups came together to complete the USDA’s Rural Development Livable Community program to be designated one of two North Dakota Livable Communities. The program works to recognize and expand on the good things happening in communities to attract potential new residents. Some great things happening in Parshall currently are construction of a new high school and United Quality Cooperative completing construction of a new 27 story 820,000 bushel concrete grain terminal with state of the art technology. There are many area activities to take in including but not limited to Pow Wows, rodeos, golf tournaments, fishing tournaments, Annual Makoti Threshing Show, farmers markets, crafts shows, and more!
