We are dedicated to preserving Sturgeon Bay’s living history, which defines our community character and cultural evolution, for future generations through advocacy, preservation and education. We do this by saving, restoring, repurposing and sharing the story of Sturgeon Bay’s authentic historic structures. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation, Inc. is working in conjunction with the City of Sturgeon Bay to preserve and restore the 1901 Teweles and Brandeis Grain Elevator, now named the Door County Granary. The Door County Granary is the last remaining structure of the turn-of-the-20th-century agricultural economy that transformed Sturgeon Bay into a year-round community. Its presence on the westside waterfront tells a story that weaves together outlying farms, Great Lakes shipping, the Ahnapee and Western Railway, and the Shipping Canal – many of the pieces that have made Door County the unique place it is today.
