Museum Matinee: Hallowed Ground Part I

Museum Matinee: Hallowed Ground Part I

Education, Film, Religious
This film explores various primitive religious camp meetings. The earliest of them was founded in the late 1700s by the horseback evangelist Bishop Francis Asbury, along with the African-American evangelist Harry Hosier, who rode with him to conduct “brush arbor” worship services for white planters and their slaves. In the Dorchester County pine forests of South Carolina these camp-meetings have “tents” built and owned by long-standing extended families from their respective communities. The campgrounds are all located within a 20 mile radius of each other near St. George, SC. At five different times each year these camp-meetings draw more than 3,000 congregants from extended families and friends of families nationwide. These congregants stay for a week and are invited to the “tents” of family members, the worship services, and to enjoy the Southern home-cooked meals prepared on wood stoves in each tent during the seven days of camp meeting.
