Summary
Located in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Wesleyan Grove occupies a storied place in the history of the camp meeting movement. Shortly after the Civil War, Wesleyan Grove began developing a feature revolutionary for a camp meeting site: cottages (rather than tents) for those who were far from home. The plan and architectural characteristics of Wesleyan Grove were soon emulated by many other camp meeting sites (including celebrated Ocean Grove), and it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2005 for its role as a prototype for the permanent camp meetings popular in the late nineteenth century. In this 1858 volume, Reverend Hebron Vincent traces the earliest history of Wesleyan Grove and also includes a fascinating appendix listing rules for camp meetings
