Little Texas: Little Texas Methodist Tabernacle
One of the last structures of its kind is located in Little Texas, an unincorporated town near Tuskegee. It’s the Little Texas Methodist Tabernacle, which has been the site of camp meetings since the 1850s and was built by local black and white settlers. Worshipers camped in the open air or in temporary wooden tent-like barracks during long revivals. The tabernacle is a “post and beam” building constructed of heavy timbers without the use of nails. Still in use today, the tabernacle has a three-aisled frame with a nave center aisle, used for two rows of pews facing an altar, and a hip roof.
