The Story of the Martha's Vineyard Camp-Meeting
Author: Sally Dagnall

$24.95 in Paperback

Walking the streets of the Martha's Vineyard Camp-Meeting, a community of charming painted cottages with a central iron tabernacle is like entering another world and another time. Established 175 years ago as a religious summer retreat during an era of intense revivalism, the community draws thousands of visitors each year. It was the model for many post-Civil War religious camp-meeting sites around the country and has been the subject of novels, histories, and photo books.

This is the story of how this famous community, now a National Historic Landmark, came to exist and survive, when others fell into ruin. It is a must read for those interested in the past, in religion, and in Martha's Vineyard.
