From our beginning, we have been fortunate to have such a wonderful group of people that worked tirelessly to get Outdoors Forever up and running. This section will be expanding as we uncover information and will post it here and on our Facebook page outdoorsforeverclub.
Our first information about the club has been sent to us by a member of the Wright Family (Diane Wright Hamm) which owned the present day County N Clubhouse and land. Below are some pictures she graciously shared with us.
David Wright and his family moved from Illinois and were the first to settle this property during the Homestead Act. David died a few years later and his son David took over the farm at the age of 15 and took care of his mother and two sisters. David married Ida Eaton and they had nine children, At one time, the farm was the Oak and Maple Grove Resort, The family photos are the David Wright Family and her father Lawrence Wright is the boy standing between his parents. The last photo is of David and Ida (Eaton)Wright that owned the resort. The table pictured is rumored to be the table that President Abraham Lincoln sat at when he was at the farm. The farm was purchased by Outdoors Forever on July 9, 1990 from Lawrence Wright.
