It seems as if the Hilton Garden Inn in Georgetown, KY is my Old Kentucky Home. This past week I returned for the 4th year to speak to the Kentucky Association for Career and Technical Education TALENTS program. This is a leadership development program for future CTE leaders in Kentucky. It was cold and snowy outside but the participants made it warm inside.
I arrived a day early so I could do some research for a future presentation about the Camp Meeting movement. About 30 miles from Georgetown is the Cane Ridge Meeting House where a great revival occurred in 1801. Thousands of people came and camped out. This started a trend for churches to have on-site campgrounds – of which a number are still in operation today. This church was built in 1791 and is still standing but a structure has been built over and surrounding the church to preserve it.
