   Photographic Inventory

Mt. Tabor Methodist Episcopal Tabernacle
Mt. Tabor, Parsippany-TroyHills Township, Morris County

The Denville Camp Meeting Association was founded in 1870 and bought land near Denville on which it soon laid out streets and plats for a permanent camp meeting. Given the steep terrain it was impossible to put the tabernacle at the center with radiating streets as in Pitman, but the small green to the south of the tablenacle certainly made this area the focal point of the camp.
     Two other buildings were initially used for church services before this was erected in 1885.
