If you’re looking for an update to the renovation to the Door County Granary that has received a lot of attention, you got your wish in Tuesday’s city of Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting. The Door County Granary, formerly the Teweles and Brandeis Granary, received an endorsement from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The endorsement also pairs with a financial commitment according to Executive Director Beth Renstrom, who offered an update on the granary renovation at Tuesday’s city of Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting. Renstrom also mentioned that the endorsement puts them in good company.
She said the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society has been working with the granary’s architecture, engineering, and construction teams to finalize design plans. She did acknowledge concerns of project speed but made the argument that they are going at a higher speed than some realize.
Completion of the project is expected for early 2022. Renstrom said the support for the renovation has received growing support from the community as awareness for the project has increased. She adds that fundraising is also on target.
