Front Gate – History

The original front gate was located at the bottom of the hill.  Two swinging gates were mounted on brick posts.


The original design for the gate was done in 1960, but it was never built.

Camp Gate Design

When the subdivision was developed, the original gates were removed and new gates were built at the top of the hill beside the stone. The original gateposts were not removed.


There were three versions of the “Forest Valley”lettering on the stone wall at the top of the hill.
