The camp meetings that marked early Rehoboth were discontinued in 1881, but briefly revived in the mid-1890s. This little, shingled dwelling was built as a camp-meeting “tent,” with the customary front-gabled arrangement plus porch, at Baltimore Avenue and 2nd Street. Its owners donated it to the town in 1975, and it was moved to this location, where it houses a historical society museum.
