A local businessman has purchased the community-based website Fairhaven.com.
Ben Kinney, who owns several businesses including Keller Williams Bellingham and the web design company Big Fresh, acquired the website from local resident John Servais.
Servais has owned and managed the website for 13 years, providing a wide range of information about the Fairhaven district. Some of the regular offerings on the site include upcoming events, features on the businesses as well as a history of many of the buildings and landmarks.
“I transferred ownership of Fairhaven.com to Ben for a variety of reasons,” said Servais in a news release. “I wanted someone that had a deep understanding and appreciation of this historic district. I also wanted someone motivated to continue serving the needs of the Fairhaven community by taking this website to the next level.”
Servais plans to remain active in the community managing his other local website, nwcitizen.com.
Kinney and his company Big Fresh will actively maintain the website. According to the news release, improvements will be made in some areas of the website, including the business listings.
