Downtown lift

Published March 11, 2004 / by Steve Berentson

Painters use a hydraulic lift to hit the high spots, painting trim on the Majestic Hotel in Anacortes. Many believe that renovation and re-opening of the historic building will provide a commercial lift in the community, especially to the downtown district. Also on the horizon is construction of a decorative archway spanning Commercial Avenue

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
