Bloy's Camp Meeting Near Fort Davis May 25, 2017
In the 1850s this area was a camp ground called Skillman Grove. In 1890, Reverend W. B. Bloy's, a Presbyterian Minister, held his first religious camp at this site near the town of Marfa. Bloy's first pulpit was an Arbuckle Coffee crate. He preached to 48 attendees from remote ranches and towns who slept in wagons, tents, and other makeshift shelters. Families prepared food in chuck wagons and shared the food with other attendees. The Presbyterians were joined by members of Baptist, Methodist, and Disciples of Christ churches who incorporated Bloy's Camp in 1902. The facilities have much improved and attendance has increased to over 1500 at the mid-August meetings. Nothing is ever sold here. I liked the speed limit sign and appreciated the plaque honoring members of the nation's military who died in service to our country.
