Ram’s Head Inn co-owner James Eklund said Thursday that following a meeting that Easton Porter representative Michael Donovan had with Ram Island neighbors, he suspected the company would not proceed with its plans to buy the property.
There have been a few others looking at the Ram’s Head Inn — “There are always people looking. Hopefully, they’re the right people,” Mr. Eklund said.
“For the moment, we’re still there,” he said about plans he and his wife Linda Eklund have for continuing to operate the Ram’s Head until a buyer is identified.
But he said he would encourage anyone who develops a plan to buy the Inn to be willing to make it public and get ahead of the curve before neighbors start spinning their own versions of plans.
