Sheboygan Armory

SHEBOYGAN — A couple from Cleveland is proposing to renovate the Sheboygan Armory and turn the 77-year-old building into an entertainment venue.

Dan and Tracy Kaderabek, who both live in Cleveland, have submitted a proposal to the City of Sheboygan that calls for restoring the Sheboygan Armory and turning the building into an entertainment venue.

The Armory, under the Kaderabek’s plan, would become a mixed use space available both on a rental basis and hosting “open to the public” events such as concerts, shows, and events year round. The facility will be available to be rented for conventions, trade shows, swap meets, conferences, weddings and receptions.

According to Tracy Kaderabek, they have secured funding from the Cleveland State Bank and the first phase of the renovations would cost nearly $1 million.

A total of six proposals were received with two of the six proposals calling to restore the Armory. The second proposal was received by the Armory Project, led by Dane Schaefer, owner of Epicure Lounge. His proposal also restores the Armory as well as constructing a 40-unit apartment complex west of the Armory building.
