Home again: An historic island property, which for 20 years operated as a bed and breakfast, has new owners and will soon become a home again.

Derick and Theressa Stonecipher have acquired the Coppersmith Inn building, 1914 Ave. M, from Ellen Whaley. The Stoneciphers plan to live in the main house and possibly keep Clara’s Cottage and The Carriage House, in the garden behind the main inn, as vacation rentals, although plans aren’t finalized, said Tom Schwenk, of Tom’s Galveston Real Estate. Schwenk represented the buyers. Holly Wade of Coldwell Banker represented the seller.
