History was made on Thursday morning with the move of the Teweles and Brandeis Granary across the Oregon Street bridge. The 58-foot, 320,000 pound building got moving at 5:15 am and finished with a blessing ceremony of the new site with dirt from the old location at 11 am. Jason Devooght, CEO of Devooght House Movers, the company contracted to do the move, said everything went well and he is glad to save a piece of history.
Devooght adds that there were plenty of safety precautions taken, and that the Granary was only half the weight that his company’s equipment is able to handle. Jason also wanted to thank Pat Drury of Drury Designs and his crew, along with the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society for making this happen.
