The Anacortes Junk Co. building, which was originally a livery stable for horses in the 1890s, was where Efthemios “Mike” Demopoulos opened Marine Supply & Hardware in 1910. The port is opting to tear down the building after a structural engineer’s report deemed it unsafe for occupants.

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.
