Middleton Lake

 Middleton Lake is on of the premier fishing spots on the East Coast of the United States. It was owned by my Great Great Grandfather, William Middleton in the early 1800's who left it to my Great Grandfather, Richard Benjamen Middleton (1830-1905) a Civil War Veteran, and a prominant citizen of then McIntosh County, GA. Upon his death he left the lake and the lands around it to my Grandmother, Nora Augusta Middleton Houston, who as a young widow in 1906 sold it
    to Hilton and Dodge Lumber Company, after which it changed hands several times. I have fond memories of the lake, because in my childhood, it was owned or leased by Judge Mel Price, who maintained the lake for his associates and
friends. My father was close to Judge Price and fished with him down there often. I would go to the camp and enjoyed fishing and the camp life. Judge Price retained Mr. Med Gordon to watch the lake for him. Uncle Meddy was a favorite with all of us boys. It was (and still is) a great place! Says Thomas D. Houston
