The port will remove the more-than-100-year-old Anacortes Junk Company building from Second Street. The site is the original location of Marine Supply & Hardware opened by Greek immigrant Efthemios “Mike” Demopoulos in 1910. Jacqueline Allison/Anacortes American
The port has been working with the museum to understand the historical significance of the stable before removing it, Executive Director Dan Worra said last month.

The 22,000-square-foot structure built in 1939 will be dismantled over the next 12 weeks and reassembled at another location in Kalispell. The Kalispell Lumber Co. is an historic local business, opening a mill on Fourth Avenue East north of the railroad tracks in 1904. The mill and lumber company later moved to its west-side location, and employed between 50 and 60 workers until the manufacturing facility closed in 1963. In 1979, Brad Wright purchased the facility and continued to operate the retail building-materials business for more than 30 years. Once he closed the doors to Wright’s Kalispell Lumber, Wright sought out opportunities for preserving the historic structure.
