Bear Creek, WI is a town of about
800 400 people located 124 miles northwest of Milwaukee, about 42 miles west of Green Bay. There’s a Catholic church and school, some houses, and about 1 bar for every 100 people in the town. That’s about it.
This is where my grandpa was born, where he married and had a large family, where he owned a bar for many years, and ultimately where he now rests eternally.

It’s a ghost town. I think I saw one family in their backyard, otherwise the only people I saw in town were the people I was with.

The building where my grandpa’s bar was still has the sign on it. Rusty, but it’s there. I don’t know why I was so amazed by this.
Posted on the door of one of the bars: In a village of 800, how many could really show up?
My aunt & uncle used to live here. I remember going as a kid.
Spence’s Market was across the street from the house my aunt & uncle lived in, a block up from grandpa’s bar. We used to go here as kids and get candy and soda and stuff like that. It was the only market in town.
Now it’s closed.
Not sure what this used to be.
