Hacienda Bar

The Lavins bought Hacienda Bar on Highway E and Burma Ave.near the small communities of Stetsonville, Medford, Curtiss and Owen in the town of Maplehurst nearly a half-century ago.

Gary Lavin grew up just a mile from his bar on the farm of his parents, Arnold and Ida, but moved away for construction work in Milwaukee in 1964 where he met Joann. A return trip to his parents' home in 1968 laid the groundwork for Lavin to return to the area with Joann and become long-standing bar owners.
