Summertime religious meetings held outside served as camping outings for whole families. Tents on platforms set up for summer homes were placed among the trees, as this one in the 1907 photograph, with a stone fireplace, a wooden floor, and chairs and beds from home. The broad porch allowed for both indoor and outdoor housekeeping.
