They’re Tearing Down Tim Riley’s Bar, Rod Serling’s Night Gallery – January 20th, 1971
Once a tavern is gone – who will remember it?
This is a history of Manitowoc taverns from the 1800’s to the present. A simple fact is found in the total number of taverns operating each year: Since prohibition – always above 75 and sometimes approaching 100. Taverns are and have always been a central part of the Manitowoc social fabric.
This site is mostly a collection of images – images with a lot of stories to tell. If you have any photos or memorabilia of Manitowoc taverns, please consider donating the images to this non-profit archive.
Oh, by the way – the picture you see at the top of the page is of my mother and two friends taken at Orville’s Bar in the late 40’s. I’m sure glad she kept a few photos.
Enjoy the site.
