Clarence Shrock Memorial Park At Governor Dick

Between the years of 1934 and 1940, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Schock purchased 1105 acres of Governor Dick Mountain.

Clarence had started Schock Independent Oil Company with his father that had grown to have 14 wholesale plants and a dozen gasoline service stations. He believed that after making provisions for his family, his estate should go for the general welfare of the public. In 1941 he converted his business into a trust and provided that, except for a modest living for himself and his wife, its income should go to public schools in the districts served by his company.

As early as 1936, Clarence made the mountain available to the public.
