Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe spends 'pretty fair chunk' on garden

The Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe of Washington purchased the Heronswood Gardens at an auction last Friday.

The purchase price wasn't disclosed. But the tribe went well above the $749,000 minimum bid, The Kitsap Sun reported.

"We did. A pretty fair chunk," Noel Higa, the director of the Port Gamble Development Authority, the tribe's economic development arm, told the paper.

The 15-acre site is about a mile away from the reservation. The tribe also has acquired another 400 acres near Heronswood.
