Teddy Bear Town (and our Teddy Bears)

From Teddy Bears


We had the recent pleasure of donating one of our teddy bears to Teddy Bear Town, located in Hill City, South Dakota.

We've had bears around our house since we got together in the late 1970's. We even have a few in our RV now. So, we decided to devote a page from our website to some of our bears, and other bears we've seen in our travels.

Teddy Bear Town

Teddy Bear Town is an 8,000+ bear showcase, located in Hill City, South Dakota. It's just a few miles from Mount Rushmore, so it's easy to visit, when you are in the lovely Black Hills area.

The bears occupy a small house along the highway, filling the area from floor to ceiling. Did I also mention that they are well taken care of, including a special "bear hospital" facility?

There are floor-to-ceiling bears, so I had to use the wide-angle camera lens.

Bears We Have Seen

The bear shown at the top of this web page was part of our lives from about 1980 on. In 2013, this bear joined the "family" at Teddy Bear Town. After some loving repair work, he sits high over the entrance area of Teddy Bear Town.
