Description

“Friday Harbor’s Town Hall was built in 1936 using Works Progress Administration (WPA) funding. The project was developed to house a new town government building and the  public library. The Town’s attorney, Elmond Genest and Mrs. Leon (Minnie) Little had less than a year to plan, propose and build the new building before the federal program ended. It was constructed locally of pressed concrete, known as Boede block, from the Boede Cement and Tile Company – this building survives today on Nichols Street.”   (http://historicfridayharbor.org)

    The correct name for the cement block company is the Friday Harbor Brick and Tile Company. The Town’s website needs to be updated to reflect the accurate name.
