In 1906 the Vicksburg Business League purchased nearly sixty acres of land and grading, one quarter mile east of this site, to attract a proposed National Guard rifle range. The range, which opened in 1907, included a store house, a concrete target pit, twenty targets, and a keeper's house. Camp Williamson closed in 1936 and was sold in 1953.
