"Agriculture built this city" (George Evenson)

Community members have met twice and will continue to meet, to discuss the historic value of the Teweles & Brandeis Granary on the westside waterfront and how to best protect it and share its stories. See a wealth of information about our historic granary.

A Vision for the Granary

The mission of the (not yet formed) Historic Granary Collective is to explore and discuss the most appropriate way to honor, protect, preserve and sustain the historic Teweles and Brandeis Granary on Sturgeon Bay’s westside waterfront. As the last remaining waterfront icon to our agrarian past, the Granary embodies the struggles and ingenuity of Door County’s early settlers and represents an important chapter in our history. The Historic Granary Collective will also assess the best ways to communicate and celebrate the legacy and stories of the Granary and the people who relied upon it.

We think you will enjoy reading the stories of the granary, and please let us know if you would like to be involved.
