On the right hand side of Route 16 before you arrive on Taylors Island is a large property called Patriot Point. This property consists of 290 acres and is situated on Slaughter Creek and intersects with Parsons Creek. It is now owned by the DC Bowl Committee (i.e. Military Bowl). It has been serving as a retreat for wounded warriors since 2016. The property was formerly known as Poverty Point and was owned by Jim Bugg, who died in 2015 and had been the Chairman of Decorating Den Interiors. President George H.W. Bush and Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf were a few of the influential guests of Mr. Bugg who hunted on the property. Before it was called Poverty Point it was known as Locust Point. The property had a raucous reputation in the roaring twenty's. Originally owned by the Carrington family, of a New York shipping line, the property was purchased in 1926 by silent screen star Clara Bow, the "It Girl." She named it "Happy Days" had a log cabin built with a three-story stone fireplace. Bow was notorious for her wild parties with bootleg liquor, said to have been brought ashore here by boat during Prohibition. Below is a photo of Clara Bow.
