First Bloys Camp Meeting held in Big Bend region


On this day in 1890, forty-three people gathered under a brush arbor in the Davis Mountains for the first Bloys Camp Meeting. The site was Skillman's Grove, sixteen miles southwest of Fort Davis in Jeff Davis County. The annual revival was still going strong at the end of the twentieth century, sponsored by Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, and Disciples of Christ.
