Ruby Tuesday – 22

Ruby Tuesday - 22

 in Martha’s Vineyard
“Campmeeting Association”

In the event, you missed the explanation of Martha’s Vineyard Campmeeting Association explanation from last week’s Ruby Tuesday.   Here it is again.

The first camp-meeting in what became known as Wesleyan Grove was held in 1835. In later years the congregations grew tremendously, and many of the thousands in attendance were housed in large tents known as “society tents.” Over time, families began leasing small lots on which to pitch their own individual tents. In the 1860s and 1870s, the family tents were rapidly replaced with permanent wooden cottages. At one time there were about 500 cottages; today there are just over 300. Over time the MVCMA has become increasingly interdenominational. Many of the cottages have been owned by the same families for generations.

    I had to just chuckle at the phrase “A Protestant Religious Corporation”. Sometimes it seems like the church is turning into just another corporation – so even though I understand why they’ve designated themselves that way, it still tickles me.


  2. THe flag really accentuates the look of the entrance!
