Cane Ridge Revival

This meeting house was originally built a few years before the 19th century, 1791. Today it is housed within another structure built to protect it from the elements.

The Scots-Irish Presbyterians came and settled in Kentucky after the advice of their guide, Daniel Boone.

I encourage you to check out their website to get a feel for the history there. The Revival that took place in 1801 military personal estimated to have reached 20,000 to 30,000 persons of all ages and backgrounds. The same site three years later, 1804 was the birth place of Springfield Presbytery.

I also have another link here of person's visit to this historic location The Xenohistorian Weblog. This blog has several pictures of the building.
