The hunt club is on acreage acquired at the close of World War II by businessman John M.

The artwork on the badge is by Richard E. Bishop. Trained to become an engineer, Bishop later famous for his art prints, mostly avian in subject. He designed the third Federal Duck Stamp and won the Charles M. Lea prize for one of his prints.
