Home to Green Co., KY: The Glenview Tabernacle ca 1900

2013-07-23 - Elam Perkins Road, Glenview, Green Co., KY - Photo from the collection of Bro. Bill Davenport.
This is only photo I've been able to find showing the Tabernacle at the Glenview Meeting Grounds, which stood in the Glenview community where I grew up. I would think the photo would have been taken in the early 1900's. Finding historical details has been hard. Frank Perkins had one photo in his collection, but, other than that, I've found few details except what I remember from my childhood on the site. I could only guess at the size of the tabernacle. The pillars which provide the foundation for the tabernacle are still standing on the place, and they would give fairly exact dimensions. Someday I hope to revisit and record that information. Those stone pillars have something of a Stonehenge quality. Another slightly eery comment is that many people tell me the man in the black suit in the center - the one on the left - looks a lot like Bill Davenport! - BRO. BILL DAVENPORT.
