The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation used the Door County Granary as the backdrop for a special donation presentation on a sunny and windy Friday afternoon. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation presented a $100,000 check from the 1923 Fund to help rehabilitate the historic Tewels & Grandeis Grain Elevator. Executive Director Beth Renstrom shares some of the work currently being done on the granary.
Mayor David Ward, a 1923 Fund member, presented the check to SBHSF treasurer Jim Janning before dozens of supporters and community members. The 1923 Fund has supported the Door County Maritime Museum, the Weidner Center and Cofrin Memorial Arboretum on the UW-Green Bay campus, and Crossroads at Big Creek, among other efforts.
