A Visual Tour of Period Camp Meeting Cottage Interiors

January 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Travel back in time to a Camp Meeting Cottage:
Inside the summer homes of 1870 to 1900.

Join us on Thursday,  Jan. 12, 2023, at the Bethel Pavilion in Mount Tabor for the 7 pm program

You may be familiar with the quaint gingerbread cottage exteriors of camp meetings like
Ocean Grove and Mount Tabor. But what did these diminutive charmers look like INSIDE?

Referencing the few period photographs available, explore furniture, decorations, and themes
that represent
camp meeting life at the turn of the last century. Which items are indicative
of the era in general, and which items are unique to camp meetings? Come to find out!

Our museum interior has evolved a great deal since this presentation was first given in 2014.
Let’s revisit what influences how we furnish our museum and see what has changed over time.
Plus it is fun to take a “virtual” visit to three other camp meeting museums including Ocean Grove, NJ,
Mount Gretna, PA, and Martha’s Vinyard, MA!
