Progress on Granary picking up this summer

You may see some substantial changes in the historic Teweles & Brandeis Grain Elevator structure in the next several weeks.  Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation President Laurel Hauser updated the Sturgeon Bay Common Council this week on the progress of the Sturgeon Bay Granary Project. In April, the granary foundation was poured over 51 new pilings. The 31 white pine and hemlock columns, which are 12 feet high, are currently being refurbished in Tennessee and expected to be returned next week. Hauser says Immel Construction will be reinstalling the columns back in their place.  Shear walls will be built to allow the two layers, the grain bin, and the head house, to be reattached to the Granary to restore it to its original 75-foot height. That work will be completed in one to two months, and Hauser notes that the Granary received some national recognition last month.

 

 

Hauser added that the amended development agreement approved by the city last month should be signed later this week. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation and Granary Project also participated in this week’s first-ever Door County Heritage Days.
