Door County Granary gifted grant

A famous Door County building that is looking to host your future events was given a generous gift. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation announced that the Door County Granary, formerly known as the Teweles and Brandeis Granary, received a National Trust for Historic Preservation Johanna Favrot Fund grant. The Johanna Favrot Fund has dispersed $128,000 among 19 various projects around the country that foster appreciation for the nation’s diverse cultural heritage. Criteria for the award include historic significance, the potential for the project to be a catalyst benefitting other historic properties, and a demonstration of community support. Executive Director for the granary project Beth Renstrom said in a previous city of Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting that the community support had picked up along with project awareness. 



The grant application was submitted by Kevin Quinn. According to a press release, the Johanna Favrot Fund grant will specifically help to reinstall the 30 original, first-floor support columns on a new, reinforced foundation.
