Our local history department speculated that this photo of Camp Young was taken during the time of WWI. People, such as the “farmerettes,” came to Camp Young to pick the fields of Young’s Farm. Camp Young was located North of the Marlboro Middle School.
This photo is from the Badner Collection of our archives. If anyone has more information that you would like to share regarding Camp Young, then please feel free to leave a comment on this post. Thank you!
