It was developed many years ago by my Grandfather, Richard B. Owen. It is a beautiful quiet and peaceful place to visit. I hope to visit again this year. Michelle 6 years ago Hi Janice, that’s so special that you can go to a place your grandfather developed. He obviously had a clear vision of how tranquil and beautiful the reserve would be.
