4-H Centers—Buford Ellington

The Buford Ellington 4-H Center was opened in 1962 and closed in spring 2009 because of lack of funds to meet the standards of other 4-H camps operated by UT. At the time of closure, the estimated cost of required renovations was approximately $5 million. The center adjoined the Milan Research and Education Center (formerly Experiment Station). It encompassed 16 acres and could accommodate groups of up to 375.
