Alan Hastings, pictured, president of the historic Frontier House, reached an agreement with the Village of Lewiston this week to re-open the Frontier House parking lot to municipal traffic.
"From day one, I thought it was important to keep the parking open," Hastings said. "It's just the first step in going in the direction that we want to go."
Hastings intends to convert the Frontier House into a brewpub and inn.
The west end of the parking lot is now open. The east end, directly behind and to the right of the building (drive-thru side), will open in the near future, once some additional cleanup is completed.
The Village of Lewiston Department of Public Works employees completed some patchwork Wednesday to ensure the lot could re-open to the public.
