Country Cabin, A Tent

Country Cabin, A Tent

The ‘tent’ camp meetings were started when a traveling preacher did the ‘riding circuits’ of the small southern communities.

The campgrounds began in the late 1700’s. Several still exist, and have camp meetings.

Meetings are held here mid September each year as they have for several hundred years.

This was our second visit to this camp and we were able to get even more detailed information. It is quite an experience to wander and photograph living history.

    1. There is a design to them (I will be doing some in depth info here soon) most are in a circle or rectangle. Less than 100 ‘tents’. 99 is a biblical number so that is the norm.

      In the center is a ‘Tabernacle’ for church services. Search on this site for the word ‘camp’ and more articles should come up.

      These are from the original old time revival meetings.
