The Atascadero Printery Foundation takes ownership of the old historic building, buying the building in an online tax auction for $300,100. The auction ended at 9:26am Monday May 15th.
The group raised $60,000 to buy the property. An anonymous donor has guaranteed the foundation a loan of $240,100 to cover the final bid. Renovating the building constructed by EG Lewis back in 1915 will cost millions of dollars. It’s been neglected for decades.
