Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant in Sister Bay this week took advantage of a rare opportunity to acquire 2.2 acres of adjacent property that will complement its current location. The newly acquired land was formerly owned by Casperson Funeral Home. It had been sold last year when Huehns Funeral Home acquired the Casperson facilities. While there are no firm plans for the property's future, John Nelson, a Johnson family spokesman, says the former Casperson site is an ideal fit with the Al Johnson's site.
In a news release, the Johnson family says negotiations were complicated and took a few months to complete. They added they're grateful to have the opportunity to acquire the property.
