This week our crews traveled to Martin's Store in Eastern Butler County. The community is home to Butler County's Conservation Club.
The 125-acre club draws visitors from miles around. Nestled in the hills of Butler County, the breathtaking views, lakes and natural waterfalls are enough to make anyone drive several miles. The club's president, Donald Haynes, says the club moved to its' current location off of Hwy 1328 in 1994.
The land was owned by his family who didn't want the land sold or divided, instead family members decided to make it a conservation club. Currently, the club has nearly 100 members.
While visiting, members often camp on site, venture on horseback or try their luck fishing at one of two lakes. Others folks hone their skills trap-shooting or head into the woods during hunting season. The clubhouse is home to the monthly meetings and their annual "wild game" feast. Bulter County's Conservation Club gives those who want it, an opportunity to get away or get in touch with nature.
