The Home Federal Bank, Mill Quarter Branch is the 2008 Winner of a Building a Better Central Oregon Award. The site was designed as pedestrian and bicycle friendly to build on the banks tradition of community stewardship; the main building is separated from the drive up creating a courtyard like parking area complete with a pergola. Both the main building and the drive-up have achieved LEED Gold certification.
