The restoration of Sturgeon Bay’s historic Teweles and Brandeis Granary will be done by a familiar contracting firm. Smet Construction of DePere was chosen by the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society to restore the grain elevator. SBHS President Christie Weber says Smet offers an award-winning contracting firm that will serve the granary well.
Weber says the Historical Society is looking to obtain grants to cover the cost of Phase II and Phase III of the project which will deal with the top two floors of the three-story structure. The first floor is projected to be a public gathering space. If all goes according to plan, a ribbon-cutting and dedication of the City’s authentically refurbished, LEED-certified Teweles and Brandeis Granary are expected to happen sometime during the summer of 2021.
