The granary building looks to be saved. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society announced over the weekend that a private donor agreed to purchase portions of the Teweles and Brandeis granary which is currently being dismantled by Kiesow Enterprises. Plans are underway to move the structure across the bay to the east side near the foot of the Maple to Oregon bridge. Kelly Avenson of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society explains where the granary would be restored.
Avenson says the waterfront location would hopefully keep the granary on the State Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. The Sturgeon Bay City Council will be discussing a consideration Tuesday afternoon of storing the building on the proposed new site along South 1st Avenue.
