Visit this at the same time as "The Gingerbread Houses" of "The Campground, they are all in the same area. The tabernacle is the centre of "The Campground". It has an interesting history and while not architecturally particulary attractive it is a huge open sided church where the community started.
Great location in the middle of lots of quaint, beautiful little colorful cottages. Very unique area and well worth a visit. The tabernacle was huge with lots of seating and a nice stage. Great area to rest and cool off on a hot day. Grounds were well maintained and area was just awesome. Great little museum with inexpensive gift shop... 更多

Large Open air theater in the round; able to accommodate a great number of folks! Meetings, Church Services, many different venues are held in this pleasant, vibrant locale.

It's also called the Wesleyan Grove, a National Historic District. Established in 1835, it was filled with tents for many years, but eventually, those were replaced by 500 Carpenter Gothic cottages with Victorian-style, gingerbread trim.... 更多
