Our aim is to preserve this historical site so that future generations may know the history of the Second Great Awakening and what God has done in our land. We wish to ensure that the meeting house and the surrounding grounds are pristine and available for church groups and school kids. This however does require money. We usually take up an offering at our camp meetings and also hold an auction at the October event to raise funds for upkeep and improvements. Thank you.
