History of Bear

Oddly enough, Bear has a quirky story behind its start. While it has not been verified, most local townspeople have a shared legend that the name of the town itself came from a local tavern that was located along the roadway from Dover to Wilmington with a giant bear emblem on the sign. While no one is really sure where the name came from, it has stuck, and this community of small town residents takes pride in their town. What started as a farming community is now a collection of middle class commuters and longtime locals.

Rise of the Riverfron

Bear might be a sleepy town of commuters and longtime locals, but the benefit of being so close to a major city like Wilmington is definitely one of the selling points for this bedroom community. You get all of the benefits of small-town living, coupled with access to things like the newly developed riverfront area. This big push beginning in the 1990s to develop and progress the area now includes a theater space, top-notch restaurants, boutique shops, and high-rise condominiums. The development efforts have paid off, and it is one of the top tourist spots for visitors.
