Gil Bear’s

Gil bears was the epitome of a Millville Neighborhood bar.

The Kerr Glass 3rd shift workers would congregate at Gilbears when their shift ended. 8am would bring a packed bar.

With the demise of Kerr Glass, and the glass industry in general, Gil’s took a hit. There wasn’t enough of a neighborhood to support a bar.

Pretty soon, Gil was open only a few hours a day, and on Sundays for the dart league.

Sadly, a few years ago the landmark tavern burned to the ground. I managed to get a few good paintings before he closed the doors for good.
