It's a throwback in time to stroll the campground, especially in the early morning with our coffee. Such beautifully preserved cottages, what a history! Visit the museum or take a guided tour.

The Campground is a maze of streets wrapping around tiny gingerbread-like cottages. The cottages are small summer homes, mostly built in the late 1800's, that took the place of the tents that encircled the Tabernacle. Brightly colored, they are a photographers dream. It's easy to get turned around in there, so listen for the main roads if you get lost.

Take a leisurely stroll back in time...adorable gingerbread houses each with a different design and color scheme. Residents take great care of their homes and the landscaping is outstanding.

Gingerbread cottages were built iaround Tabernacle 1800s as a campground for Methodist revival gatherings. Just a beautiful spot to walk around and pick your favorite!

Not only did I have a chance to look at all of the cottages, I had the opportunity to go inside one as my friends were staying for the week. Very quaint and unique - takes you back in time.
