Regarding Echo Hill. Echo Hill was originally a farm
The Stone Farm House was originally the camp infirmary and then became the home for the Lechners in 1942. They retired from the camp in 1959 and sold the operation to a local church. The county acquired the property in 1973. Today, Echo Hill still continues its tradition of teaching local children about nature through the Summer Nature Program and other scheduled or requested programs.
