Grain Elevator To Move Early Morning Thursday To New Location

The old grain elevator in Sturgeon Bay is expected to be moved from its current home on the city’s west side waterfront to a new east side location Thursday. Plans call for the movers to began the process at 3AM, hoping to travel over the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge between 5 and 6AM and arriving at the new home off 1st Avenue about 7AM. It’s anticipated that three hours will be needed for the trek which could be over between 10 and 11AM, if there are no complications. A christening ceremony with Door County historian, George Evenson leading the program, is planned for sometime between 10 and 11AM. Getting the 117-year old structure to the east side location is just the beginning of the local effort intended to breath new life into the building built at the turn of the last century including planning and restoration work. The “spruced up” building could be ready for the public some time in 2019.
