- Around the Camp Ground
The Christian camp meeting began as a phenomenon of the American frontier. Not only were there few authorized houses of worship, there were even fewer ordained ministers to fill their pulpits. The “camp meeting” was an innovative response to this situation. These camp meetings led to tent filled camp grounds. Our camp grounds grew and became a village of permanent structures, with tabernacles for the services and cottages for residences.
Visiting the Historic Methodist CampGround is like taking a step back in history to a more tranquil time, where it’s not uncommon to experience the warmth of a handshake and a hug. In this welcoming community the camp ground is a welcoming place where God and nature embrace all.
Walking tours of the Historic Methodist CampGround and Heritage House museum are offered regularly.
