SGT Mark was ferrying the battalion commander on a range recon the other day when the Colonel directed him on a side trip to Overhills, once the playground of the Rockefellers.
Overhills, a 10,500 acre estate, was purchased by the U.S. Army in 1997. It has an 18-hole golf course designed by famed architect Donald Ross. It's completely over grown now but the Army, despite its long term goal of using the property for training, has committed to preserving the 55 historic resources it has identified there.
A history and a power point of Overhills can be found here.
