[The Old Camp Wolters Entrance]

Description:

This picture of the entrance to original Camp Wolters was taken sometime in the 1930's. This entrance was located near and behind the National Guard Armory, which is located on United States Highway 180E. A National Guard Cavalry troop was located on West Mountain after World War I, and before Camp Wolters was mobilized. Expansion of Camp Wolters began in 1939; and early in World War II, it became the largest Infantry Replacement Training Center (IRTC) in the nation. Only a couple of the original Camp Wolters buildings remain. They are located on the campus of the Mineral Wells High School.
