General History of the Club

Membership Handbook




The Sportsmen's Club was formed in 1927 and held their first meeting in a second floor hall on East Street in Wrentham. Sometime later a building on Park Street,
Wrentham was bought and meetings were held there until 1947 when the present clubhouse was purchased. The building was an old mill and much had to be done.


First priority was a kitchen and the pine wall and floor, than came a shooting gallery in the cellar. The club was not open all the time, as it is now, and was used primarily for fishing, casting events and parties.


The first trap machine was installed in 1968 and, although it was a dangerous thing to be around, it was used until 1985 when the present trap house and field was built. Lights were installed and a better trap machine was acquired shortly after
that. A greater interest in trap led to the purchase of a new machine in 1990.


The rifle range started around 1978-1979 and has been improved from time to time. The addition of the range cover, warming house and a storage building were all added in the late 1980's.


Stocking of fish and game has been a practice of the club since 1948. The pond was partially dredged in 1957 when the dam was lost to a storm. Then in 1987 a major restoration was started that would go on until completion in 1991. The club was expanded from a screen porch that was built in the 1960's to a very comfortable
lounge in 1989.
