This is the second of a series of articles on the Quad Communities of Brillion, Hilbert, Wrightstown and Reedsville trying to revitalize downtown commercial districts.
REEDSVILLE – Someone traveling on Highway 10 will see a large “Reedsville” sign welcoming them to the village as they head east of Brillion. But if they drive too fast, or blink, they will quickly be out of Reedsville’s limits.
Reedsville is faced with a unique situation of having their high school highlight the downtown area, and on a larger scale, the entire community. While Reedsville has businesses, like Equity Livestock and the feed mill, the high school is at the center of an agricultural town.
A bulk of Reedsville is in the downtown area, a stretch on Manitowoc Street, where a few bars and restaurants are, as well as Denmark State Bank and a 24/7 fitness center.
Village President Andy Bubolz says it’s an ongoing process to add life to the area. “We’re slowly working on some revitalization,” Bubolz said.
But for the foreseeable future, the true fabric of the community comes from education.
“The high school is the hub,” Reedsville School Superintendent and High School Principal Tony Butturini said. “It’s the focal point of the community.”
