It's official: Brickworks site is now owned by the San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild

The San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild announced Wednesday it has purchased the historic building and property at 150 Nichols St., the future home of Friday Harbor Brickworks, a farmers' market facility and community events center.

The purchase was made possible with donations from the project's supporters, the taxpayers of Washington state through a grant from the Local and Community Projects 2010 Program, and a USDA Rural Business Enterprise Grant.

The closing took place on Nov. 1.
