A couple of local lawyers are taking over the building that was once home to the Regal Ware Museum. New tenants include Amy Salberg with the Salberg Law Firm and Sara Snyder with Snyder Law, LLC.
Snyder will be moving in Feb. 1 and Salberg will follow in May.
The red brick building, 18 E. Washington Street, was sold in July 2015 to Iron Ridge Properties LLC for $260,000. The building had been on the market since April 2014. It was initially priced at $630,000; the price was dropped to $499,999.
The Washington County Historical Society put the building up for sale two years ago. WCHS executive director Patricia Lutz said it was “a business decision” as changes in the industry saw fewer grants, lower donations and a downturn in staff.
The museum also struggled with low attendance, growing maintenance, and a loss of revenue after Glacier Hills Credit Union moved out.
Signs for the new law firm location were made by Sign Works of Hartford.
