This organization was founded in 1963 by Alex Bohle and was called "Lake 14 Rod & Gun Club".
Club members held their meetings any place they could; in the park when weather permitted, or in a member's home.
In 1965, the property at 3413 Hennesey Road was purchased. In 1967 the clubhouse was started and the club's name was changed to "Watervliet Rod & Gun Club". In 1968, "Watervliet Rod & Gun Club" was officially incorporated. Watervliet Rod & Gun Club Inc. continues to provide a great service to hunters and shooters from around the country.
