Historical Campwoods

We'll have pictures up from our trip to France soon, but in the meantime, here are some old photos of our kooky little community, circa 1875:

from this site.

"Camp Woods, which is now a residential neighborhood, was once the location of annual Methodist camp meetings. For two weeks each summer, thousands of people would gather on this site to hear thunderous sermons, sing hymns, pray and give personal testimony. Methodist camp meetings began early in the 19th century and continued well into the 20th."
