Tabernacle At Indian Field

Tabernacle At Indian Field

This tabernacle is surrounded by 99 ‘tents’, old cabins really, and is used for revival style Methodist Church meetings once a year. Camp meetings at Indian Field started in 1801, down the road, and moved here in 1838. A revival has been held here every year since.

Note; there are several camps around South Carolina, we have previously published articles on a few including this one.

Very often the early “fire and brimstone” sermons would bring in more people than a house or a church building could handle. This tabernacle can seat about 1,000 people.

The layout of Indian Fields is based on the biblical story of the Israelites erecting tents, representing the tribes of Israel, encircling a tabernacle. Electricity has been added as well as basic well water.

It’s best described as an adventure to experience and photograph all this history.
