Door County is considering a plan to purchase the Former Younkers building on 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay for about $505,000. The nearly 23,000 square foot building would then be used for items currently being stored at the Door County Historical Museum adjacent to the former store. County Administrator Ken Pabich says the building would also archive historic materials owned by the county.
The county finance committee approved a resolution recommending the use of $505,000 in unassigned funds for the purchase. The Facilities and Parks Committee will consider the resolution when it meets Friday, that's the same day that county supervisors will walk through the building. The resolution will go before the full County Board on January 22nd.
