    Short Interesting Morning

    Before The State acquired the Wharton Estate There were a lot of Gun Clubs on what is now the Wharton State Forest.That was in the early 40's.The G.I. Club.,Dividing Creek Gun Club to mention a couple.When the State demolished the clubs,that was the end of an era.Shame.
