Commercial Avenue, Anacortes.
The Port of Anacortes continues to discuss the future of the aging Olson building.
A May 2017 report on the conditions of the Olson and Marine Supply & Hardware buildings, which the port ordered after taking ownership of the block in December 2015, laid out options to: “save the building” through complete structural rehabilitation, demolish and replace with a similar building. The options cost between $1.3 million and $3 million.

The Olson Building (built in 1902) at 202 Commercial Ave. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. While the building has a large "1891" above the door, that is likely the date the saloon was established — the wood buildings burned and were replaced by the brick one in 1902. Anacortes Museum
