Legacy Tuckers Grove Campground

Tucker's Grove Camp Meeting Ground is a historic African Methodist Episcopal Church camp meeting ground located near Iron Station, Lincoln County, North Carolina. The arbor is a square open structure with a deep pyramidal roof and supported by an open truss system. It has a raised platform with a pulpit and in front of the platform a long wooden bench known as the mourners' bench, "seeker's bench" or "anxious seat." The arbor is surrounded by frame structures called "tents" which form an almost continuous enclosure, roughly square in form. The camp meeting has been operating continuously since 1876.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1]
