Welcome to the Town of Clover The Town of Clover was formed in 1906 by ordinance of Bayfield County . It comprises over 60 square miles on the south shore of Lake Superior of located between Port Wing on the West and Cornucopia on the East. Other unincorporated entities existed within the geographic area of the Town of Clover in the past. The area we now call Herbster was once called Orchard City . Many years ago a small Finnish community, including a school, flourished on Bark Point, a 5 mile long peninsula.

Herbster is a hamlet located on State Highway 13. This unincorporated municipal entity within the borders of the Town of Clover is a focus of community activity. Being unincorporated, Herbster has no statutory recognition as a governmental unit. A post office with a 54844 zip code is our main claim to geographic reality. Of course, highway maps identify Herbster on State Highway 13.

The Town of Clover, by contrast, does not appear on most maps. The Town of Clover serves the needs of our resident population and non-resident land owners by providing emergency fire and ambulance services, road maintenance, cemetery, recreation facilities, and administrative support.
