CROSSVILLE, Tenn. --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency held a dedication ceremony for Tennessee's newest wildlife management area (WMA) in Roane County.
The Sept. 24 ceremony was held to recognize Gerald Largen for his gracious gift of this property to TWRA and the people of Tennessee. Located on Bowman's Bend Road, the 112 acre property, to be called the McGlothin-Largen Wildlife Management Area, also has over a mile of lake frontage and will become the 125th WMA managed by TWRA in the State.
A plaque of appreciation was presented to Gerald Largen by TWRA Executive Director Ed Carter, in memory of his mother, Martha McGlothin Largen and his father, John Roy Largen.
TWRA has plans to build a fishing pier at the location and open the area to limited hunting and wildlife viewing.
