Inscription.  

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.
