North American Savings Bank had its beginnings as the City Building and Loan Association (CBLA) in St. Louis in the early 1920s. A few years later, CBLA moved across the state to Kansas City and changed its name to North American Savings Association; it was known as NASA well before the space age. In the 1990s, the name was changed to North American Savings Bank when the Bank became a federally chartered stock savings bank. North American Savings Bank has assets in excess of $1.9 billion today, and serves not only the Kansas City metropolitan area, but offers nationwide accounts.
