Over 135 years of history will soon be gone as crews began demolishing the Shipwrecked Brewpub and Inn in Egg Harbor on Tuesday. The historic building was heavily damaged on August 20 when a fire began in one of the upstairs rooms, requiring the assistance of 15 fire departments from across Door, Kewaunee, and Brown Counties to fight the blaze. Egg Harbor Administrator Ryan Heise says the village issued the permit to demolish the building, but he is interested to see what will stand in its place.
Heise hopes the area sitting on the corner of Highway 42 and County G will be cleaned up in time for next weekend’s Pumpkin Patch Festival. The owners of Shipwrecked hope to be able to rebuild and be open in time for the 2018 summer season.
