Old-Fashioned Camp Meeting Marker, KG-16

Adjacent to and named for this stream, Wabash Campground was exemplary of a religious and social institution, indeed of a way of life, which flourished during the 19th century. Hundreds of families would camp for two weeks or more while attending the revival meetings first held here in 1834. The campground functioned until the early 1900's, when the large shed used during worship and many family shelters were destroyed by fire.
