Welcome to History Notes, our weekly feature that looks at Egg Harbor Township history. Each week, we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Lynn Wood of the Greate Egg Harbour Township Historical Society, who shares early photos of places in Egg Harbor Township with our readers.

The Clover Gun Club was located on Ivins Avenue in the McKee City section of the township. It started in the 1940s in a log cabin. This photo was taken circa 1964.
