Granary awarded $100,000 donation

The Door County Granary got a big boost and a step closer to becoming a public cultural center and agricultural museum on the Sturgeon Bay waterfront this week.  The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation announced Tuesday that they would receive a $100,000 donation from the 1923 Fund that will be used towards the rehabilitation of the Tewels & Brandeis Grain Elevator.  The donation will be presented at 2 pm this Friday at the granary site by David Ward, who is the Sturgeon Bay mayor and a 1923 Fund trustee.  The 1923 Fund has supported the Weidner Center and Cofrin Memorial Arboretum on the UW-Green Bay campus, the Door County Maritime Museum, and Crossroads at Big Creek, among other efforts. Last week, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved a Third Amendment to the Development Agreement that changes the original substantial completion date for the granary site from June 1 of this year to April 30, 2023.
