About Us: Our History and our Management Team



Our History


Black Hawk Senior Residence is Fort Atkinson's longest running, privately owned assisted living residence.  We have been serving Jefferson County seniors since 1991. 


The Black Hawk has been voted the Area's Best Assisted Living Facility every year since readers of the Jefferson County Daily Union added the category to their poll in 2007.  It's a designation in which we take great pride, and strive to earn every year going forward.


Our management team consist of:

The Logan Family
