Preserving our History – Leaving a Legacy

The Legacy Ladies Project celebrates the lives of Indian Springs women who have impacted their families and the ministry of the campmeeting throughout the years. Participants of the project honor a special woman by writing memories about her for the Legacy Ladies History Book.

In addition to written stories about these remarkable women, the Honorees may be honored on the ‘Tree of Remembrance’ Plaque with an Engraved Bronze Leaf.

The Legacy Ladies’ Project is a fundraiser sponsored by The Ladies’ Fellowship of Indian Springs.  Funds collected by the project are used to beautify the common areas of the campground.  They also enhance various Workers’ quarters, making them a more functional and inviting place to stay.

Three Aspects of The Legacy Ladies Project 

  • The Legacy Lady History Book:  A collection of antidotes and stories written by family and/or friends about your Honoree.  New stories are contributed each year; eventually we hope to publish a book!
  • Engraved Bronze Leaf with your Honoree’s name
  • Legacy Ladies’ Tree of Remembrance – display of all Engraved Bronze Leaves

Honoring a special woman in your life makes a wonderful commemorative gift for a birthday, Christmas or Mother’s Day.  Gift certificates are available for presentation; see below.

Preserving Our History

Previous histories of Indian Springs Holiness Camp Meeting have chronicled the founding and growth of the Campground, the preachers, the Bible Study leaders, the various improvements made on the grounds, etc.

The Legacy Ladies Project is a different kind of history.  The project captures a sense of what life was like on the campground across the years, as seen through the lives of the women and families who gathered and shared the experiences of campmeeting life.  Each woman’s character, her personality, her spiritual experience and how she influenced family and friends is celebrated.

The Legacy Ladies History Book

The current format of the Legacy Lady History Book is a loose leaf binder to allow annual additions to be easily made. Eventually, we hope to publish the entire collection in permanent book format.

Consider honoring your wife, mother, grandmother, special friend, teacher, or worker – any special lady who has been a blessing at Indian Springs and an example to those who come after her.
