Mount Tabor was founded as a Methodist camp meeting ground, the site where a camp meeting was held for 10 days or so each summer. The camp meeting itself consisted of a heavy schedule of religious services, prayer meetings, and uplifting lectures. Shortly after its founding in 1869 it became evident that the early participants in the community would not be content to spend only the short period of the camp meeting here, and very quickly Mount Tabor became a summer resort community. Eventually the summer tents and cottages became year-round homes, still within the dimensions of the original 25′ x 16′ tent lots. Today, Mount Tabor is a very special community. It has an historic heritage that is being proudly preserved. It is a community full of good will and good neighbors. We hope you enjoy visiting Mount Tabor as much as we enjoy living here!
