Graffiti Allowed

On the end of the dock in Ephraim, Wisconsin, which was originally built by brothers Aslag and Halvor Anderson in the late 1850's sits the Anderson warehouse. 

While visiting Ephraim, Wisconsin in Door County, one landmark that every visitor must see is the Anderson warehouse, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The warehouse is located on the dock that was originally built in the 1850's by the Aslag and Halvor Anderson.

The original warehouse was destroyed by a storm, the second by fire, the third still standing is now known as the Hardy Gallery. In 1951, the Anderson family sold the dock and warehouse to the village of Ephraim.

Still a working dock, Anderson warehouse is best known for its graffiti covered walls. A sign posted on the warehouse states, boater and visitors are encouraged to continue the tradition of signing the warehouse wall.

Armed with a new package of markers we left our mark on this historic building.

It was difficult to find an empty spot, after several minutes of looking I found the perfect spot...
