Marker Text Built in 1913, this tabernacle served as a permanent structure for summer religious revivals, and eliminated the need to rebuild or repair the brush-covered arbors that had been used in earlier years. Local Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian church congregations helped erect the structure, which included the hand-made benches. Like many tabernacles, it also served as a community meeting place. It is still used for the annual Lingleville Homecoming. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983 Incising on base: Sponsored by Lingleville Homecoming Committee 1982 & 1983.
