IMAGES OF OUR PAST - EARLY 1950S - STATE OF GEORGIA NEGRO 4-H CAMP, DUBLIN, GEORGIA


Back in the 1940s, the Georgia Negro 4-H organization established its state wide camp on the present site of Riverview Golf Course.  In the mid 1950s, with the support of the Chamber of Commerce and many white citizens in the community and the state, the club was expanded to include a large swimming pool and the Emory Thomas auditorium.
