Port Ludlow landmark felled by wreckers By MAXINE DOUBEK PORT TOWNSEND— The old power house at Port Ludlow gave up a long vigil Tuesday morning when a wrecker's ball knocked the building to the ground. The two-story cement build- Ing was the only building left of what was once a thriving community during the years when the ferry ran from Port Ludlow to Edmonds and the lumber mill was In operation. The old power house has represented high adventure for children In eastern Jefferson County for many years since a picnic at the old town site usually meant a chance to explore the beaches and visit the old build- Ing which stood In lonely splen. dor at the far end of the spit. Their shouts inside the empty building echoed, bounced off the walls and rolled across the bay. The Inside walls carried a history of their own, bearing the names of countless visitors and children's children. Then Port Ludlow died. From its remains are spring, ing new life, new vitality. Once more the old townslte is ringing with the sound of men and machinery as Pope and Talbot come closer to the completion of Its promise to build a new com. munlty. Modern buildings are going up one by one and main thoroughfares and access streets have been built, opening approximately 1,000 lots for builders during the first phase of development. The first of three wells has been drilled, insuring a water supply, and the first water storage tank, capable of handling 150,000 gallons of water, has been installed. Underground Installation of public utilities such as telephone, electricity, water and sewage lias been completed. There is a certain amount of sadness when one:witnesses the passing of an old era, but it is difficult to remain so for long when all around you a new community is being born.
