We chose to honor the history of the Old Mill and the community of Bend by creating a mass timber structure. This site was the tool shed at the Brooks Scanlon Mill. I’m sure you can imagine the jokes we came up with when discussing what we would call the branch. We settled on the Old Mill branch. The completed project will feature three floors, including a full-service branch with a drive-up and ATM on the ground floor.
We expect this location to open by early 2025 and plan to relocate several of our existing teams to this location.
