Maritime Tower gets a name

Thanks to a generous Green Bay donor, the Door County Maritime Museum is a big step closer to making its planned tower a reality. The museum announced Friday a $1 million gift from the George Kress Foundation for the ten-floor structure planned to be filled with interactive activities. The maritime tower will be named after the late James F. Kress, former owner of Green Bay Packaging. Deputy Director Sam Perlman says this is an important step towards eventually breaking ground.

The donation leaves the Door County Maritime Museum just over $1 million short of its capital campaign goal for the maritime tower of $5.5 million.
