The Black Bear Tavern was located on the north side of E. Mill St. just west of the alley which bisected the block between Main St. and East St. You can probably find articles and, perhaps, pictures relating to the establishment in the archives of the "Carthage Citizen" at the Indiana State Library. There were sometimes Saturday night altercations and disputes over the liquor license applications which may have been newsworthy, and, therefore, recorded in the local newspaper.
