After a 15 month vacation approximately a half mile away, the Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator has returned to its home on the west side. The journey across the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge began at about 5:30 a.m. before arriving to the former Door County Cooperative property before 9 a.m. Shawn Fairchild of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society says he is happy to see the granary make the trip back.
Christie Weber from the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society says there are still some steps to be taken before the granary can begin a more permanent residency.
Weber is hopeful the granary will be placed on a new foundation this fall. The pair of moves was partly funded by an anonymous donation to the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society for its restoration and future upkeep.
