Proposal to Demolish Sheboygan Armory is Being Debated

A building in Sheboygan with a lot of history is another step closer to being demolished.

Last week Sheboygan's Common Council approved the resolution to start the bidding process for the building's demolition.

City officials estimate the demolition could cost as much as $500,000.

This would make space for possible new developments.

The Sheboygan Armory was originally built in 1942.

It quickly became a hub for basketball.

It hosted the yearly North High School vs. South High School rivalry game.

It, also, had its own NBA team for a time.

The building is city owned and because of that history, there used to be a push to save the space.

The Armory Foundation has since disbanded and the city is moving forward with clearing the space.
