Historical Society scrambles to save Potawatomi Tower

Sturgeon Bay Historical Society President Christie Weber says the DNR has used some sleight of hand to reach its conclusion to tear down the Potawatomi Tower. Weber says that the DNR study concurs with a prior study commissioned by the Historical Society regarding the $250,000 price tag to return the current wooden tower to working order. Weber says older structures can be grandfathered in to avoid Americans with Disabilities Act compliance. The DNR is requiring certain additions which technically make it a new structure that must be brought up to code.


Weber says the Historical Society is trying to save taxpayers millions of dollars. Door County Daily has a request in for the full study commissioned by the DNR. The agency has not responded at this time.
