18 May 1856 - 11 Dec 1941

This gate marks the east entrance to Glenmore Hall, built by Charles B. Metcalfe as his residence in 1907, about one-quarter mile west of this marker. Metcalfe arrived in the Concho Valley in 1873 at age seventeen from his home in Tennessee. In 1900 he bought Glenmore Farm, 1,400 acres on the Concho River s.e. of San Angelo, where he raised produce and livestock. In later years much celebrated for his accomplishments, Metcalfe built dams, bridges, some of the area's first fences, and served on the Texas legislature during 1914-1918. Metcalfe sold at nominal cost a tract of the Glenmore estate to the U.S. Government in 1940 as part of an Army pilot training center, later named Goodfellow Air Force Base.
