PORT TOWNSEND — Residents are worried they may lose another landmark in the historical uptown neighborhood and they’re not happy about it.
In fact, they’re downright mad.
“I’m upset. We’re all upset,” said Mitch Poling.
Poling is Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 479, which for 71 years has held meetings in a rustic log house sheltered by fir trees on a city block atop Morgan Hill.
Now, the troop’s charter organization, the Elks Lodge, is meeting with the Chief Seattle Boy Scout Council to discuss selling the Scout House and view property it sits on, eight city lots worth an estimated $1 million.
