Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

Tabernacle at Bloys

Description:

This photograph shows a view of a campground from what appears to be an unpaved road. To the far left, there are some trees in front of a long building with the sides propped up . Behind it, to the right, there are white tents interspersed among trees and what appears to be an old-style automobile. To the far right, there are more trees and another car. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph says, "Tabernacle at Bloys."
