Bogk's Tavern

The tavern was a popular gathering place in the community for many years.

Bogks Tavern

It was started by Joe and Etta Bogk in the early 1900s and remained open until the late 1960s. Local residents who lived in Butte des Morts during Prohibition always gave a wink and nod when posed with the question of how a tavern could have survived during that time.

The Butte des Morts Historical Preservation Society was started in 2014 by Joe and Patti Yana from Butte des Morts, and Randy Domer from Oshkosh.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, and disseminate materials and information relating to the rich history of Butte des Morts, Wisconsin, which began in 1818 as a fur trading post founded by Augustin Grignon.
