Cane Ridge Meeting House

Site of the famous Cane Ridge revival of 1801, when 20,000 to 30,000 people assembled for a camp meeting that had a profound influence on American and frontier religion. The original meeting house, built in 1791, is enclosed in a stone building and is the largest one-room log structure in the United States, seating 400 people. There also is a museum building and pioneer graveyard on the 5-acre area, plus picnicking sites.
