New Wall in Baileys Harbor

The stone wall along Highway 57 in front of Stella Maris Catholic Church and Chives Door County in Baileys Harbor is getting a facelift. 

During the last week in December, Baileys Harbor contractor Franke Masonry Construction started work on a concrete retaining wall, according to deacon and Stella Maris business administrator Tony Abts. The goal of the new wall – the cost of which Stella Maris and Chives are sharing – is to make the area more structurally sound, Abts said.

Previously, the church relied on a vinyl fence on top of the wall to keep people from climbing it and possibly getting injured, he said.
