A long-time Northern Door County landmark is nearing a rebirth with a little help from some friends. The Friends of Peninsula State Park were recently named as recipients of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Grant. The $20,000 dollar boost, awarded by the state of Wisconsin, will go toward the Eagle Tower Fund, where Rachel Stollenwerk, Campaign Director for the Eagle Tower Fund, says it will be put to good use.
The grant puts the Eagle Tower Fund at around $400,000 dollars toward their ultimate goal of $750,000, which they hope to have collected by July 1st.
