More Random Reservation Photos, Still from the Air!
This is the final week of our “Aerial Boxwell” series. Over the last two months, we’ve visited all the camps and a few random locations here and there. This week we finish up with three final images of random parts of the reservation–random in that they follow no specific pattern!
The first photo takes a rare look at the Ferhmann Training Center. Known to “old timers” as either Ittabeena or Akers Cabin, Fehrmann Training Center is the home of the Scoutmaster Steak Supper and various training activies. It will also be the location of the dinner and campfire programs for the 2014 Reunion!
The second photo is “Horseshoe.” Perhaps more appropriately named “Horseshoe Bay,” this far corner of Camp Stahlman is an old quarry that filled when Old Hickory Lake was built in the 1950s. From the early 1960s until about 1976, this was also the area where the Reservation Pump House pumped water from the lake, purified it, and sent it out to the Reservation as drinking water.
The third photo is a nice view of Camp Light, or more appropriately, the High Adventure Area. Located in this area, and seen in this photo, are the shotgun range, COPE, the pool, and the High Adventure Center. If you haven’t been to Boxwell in a while, this has been a high growth area!
Next week we’ll return to some more traditional “From the Archives” material, picking out some photos that are legitimately old!
