CAMP MERRILL

CAMP MERRILL. Camp Merrill, on a site formerly known as Camp Casa Blanca on the south side of the Nueces River in northeastern Jim Wells County, was established in 1852. The camp may have been a subpost of Fort Merrill; both installations were named for Hamilton W. Merrill. The town of Casa Blanca later developed on the site.
