Bent Tree Memorabilia

Five years ago, a Bent Tree property owner noticed that I was posting about Bent Tree history, and sent me scanned images of a 1970s Bent Tree brochure.  Right before he moved away from Bent Tree last year, he contacted me and told me he’d like to give me the actual brochure. The 9″x12″ full-color booklet is my favorite piece of Bent Tree memorabilia, and I sure do appreciate his generosity.  Here’s the front cover:
