The Granary on Sturgeon Bay’s West Waterfront was unanimously approved for placement on the Wisconsin State Registry of Historic Places Friday, Aug. 18. In July the Sturgeon Bay Common Council voted to tear down the Granary if a viable rehabilitation and funding plan is not presented to the council by Jan. 1, 2018. In May access to the granary was closed by the city when it was deemed a health hazard. The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society submitted nomination papers for the Granary in October of 2016. The building was originally an integral part of the city’s plans to redevelop the west waterfront, with plans to turn the structure into a brewpub and restaurant.
