Club History

Origins

5th Annual Banquet, Fish and Game Ass'n of Marlboro, Pine Grove Inn - Marlboro Mass. Jan. 16, 1935

The original club was organized early in the 20th Century by a small group of conservationists, and was called the "Young Sportsmen's Club". This group tried for several years to sell its conservation programs with little success and was disbanded.
In the early 1920's, depletion of wildlife and water pollution became so alarming that the group reorganized. It was incorporated as the Marlboro Fish & Game Association in June of 1933.

Expansion

The first piece of real estate was purchased in 1931 and consisted of 26 acres. The land was cleared and, later in 1933, a portable building was purchased from the Town of Northborough. In 1947, the club purchased 21 additional acres of land. Members began building the first trout pond and a steady program of advancement and expansion has progressed ever since.

1970s Brochure (Front-Inner-Back)

The City of Marlboro acquired 7.6 acres of land in the 1970s for the enlargement of Millham Reservoir. The club now includes 45 acres of land, a clubhouse with function hall, a pavilion, a caretaker's home, indoor and outdoor ranges for rifle, pistol, and archery, in addition to the fish ponds which are stocked for the use of its members.

Affiliates

The club maintains memberships in the Middlesex County League, Mass Skeet Shooters Association, the NRA, Gun Owner's Action League, Bay State Archers, and the Organization for the Assabet River
