The historic B.F. Shriver Cannery building in Sykesville’s South Branch Park is getting a new life, thanks to a $2 million grant from the state. The grant money is intended for infrastructure improvements needed to reuse the now-empty building. The funding will also be used to improve pedestrian access to South Branch Park.  “This funding will go a long way in helping Sykesville achieve our long-desired goal of seeing the cannery building put back into productive public use,” Sykesville Mayor Stacy Link stated in a news release. “The town will work diligently to develop options in the future reuse of the building, while ensuring that the public plays a part in the final say.”
