Old Club House On The Sangamon
There were very few residents in Oakford who
didn't like to fish or hunt. Many owned a club house
that stood on the old channel of the Sangamon, west of Oakford.
(on the Lawrence Baker land of today). Each year groups would
either close their businesses for a week or have someone operate
them and they'd spend a week enjoying the nickname of the Sangamon,
"the land of plenty." Maltby seldom missed a group going on these
expeditions and the above picture shows their prize.
