New owners set to take over Farmington American Legion this week


The Farmington American Legion building will get a new name this week, but bigger changes than that will have to wait for at least a little while.

New owners Craig Loeschke and Howard W. Nissen were scheduled to finalize their purchase of the Legion Wednesday. They expected to close but business for a couple of days to handle payroll and other issues related to the transition, then open again Friday as Tailgaters Sports Bar and Grill.
