A Little Club History

During the spring of 1964, a small group of N.R.A. rifle and pistol shooters, tired of being chased out of gravel holes used as shooting ranges, located a piece of property off Route 49, West of Union Road. This gravel hole and surrounding property belonged to the Smith Brothers’ roofing family. A meeting with the Smiths was arranged, and permission to establish a shooting range was granted. By verbal agreement, the founders of the Club agreed to pay the taxes on the land. Consisting of 108 acres, deemed undeveloped wilderness, the taxes were a whopping $1 per acre per year, for a lease price of only $108 per year, which remained for many years to come. These “pioneers” cleared and surveyed the property that is now the 600 yard rifle range. They even hand dug a well to have fresh water to drink. Shooters came from miles around and from other states to shoot on the range and hold matches. Some shooters even brought empty jugs to fill with the cold fresh water to take home with them. The well pipe is still there, but unfortunately due to vandalism, the well was abandoned. continue reading->
