Tabernacle Meeting House

Tabernacle Meeting House

We have visited several Methodist Camp Meeting grounds but I think this one is designed the closest to the biblical Israelite camp  descriptions.

The Tabernacle sits in encircled by 99 tents (cabins now).

Preachers ‘riding the circuit’  would give the sermons, attendees stayed in tents as described in the bible. These were known as revival meetings, now called camp meetings.

Every year, no matter pandemic, civil war, other disasters, a week of meetings is held. This included 2020.

If you are a southern Methodist you will have at least heard of revivals still being held. If not, seeing a camp is an extraordinary piece of history. On a shoot once we actually had a private helicopter land in a nearby field when the grounds were spotted from above.

Talk about odd, this Yankee gave a small (respectful) tour of the camp explaining the history.
