This collection contains some of the financial papers, history, and photographs from the Pecos River Family Encampment. The collection is housed in one box.
The Pecos River Family Encampment began meeting in 1940, when J. Frank Black, preacher, and Charlie Chandler, rancher, decided that Chandler's land would be the ideal location for a camp. After a short hiatus during the World War II years, the camp began meeting again in 1944. The campground is located on Hwy. 349 between Iraan and Sheffield, TX, on the bank of the Pecos River. The camp is supported by the local churches of Christ.
The collection is arranged by material type, then if necessary, by date.
