In 1799, a camp meeting movement began in Kentucky. It was a place where farmers gathered before the fall harvest to assemble people for barn raisings, speak about politics, express religious feelings, and desires for personal salvation. Maple Grove hosted such meetings, and took on greater meaning after the Revolutionary War. It set the stage for the great American Revival. Many historians credit these camp meeting places for saving the young republic. The quaint little farm chuch at Maple Grove was built in 1880. Wave handblown glass, sandstone entry steps, poplar douple doors, and straight back benches, have graced this church for over 130 years.
