HALFWAY - The former Moose Lodge on Downsville Pike has been sold to a local buyer, real estate agent Don Beaver with Maryland General Realty said Monday.
The 24,000-square-foot building originally was on the market at $1.6 million, but a sign in front of the building advertised "Drastic Price Reduction."
Beaver said the new owners were on vacation and had requested that their names not be released yet.
Halfway Fire Co. at one time had an option to buy the facility for an expanded bingo operation, said President Jim Kimble.
"The price just didn't suit us," he said.
Kimble said the company could have raised the money to buy the property, and is looking for a place to put a larger bingo and social hall.
