“The Christian Church, Disciples of Christ Tabernacle at Bethany Beach. About 1900, a group of members presented to the church, sixteen acres of land at Bethany Beach. The tabernacle, which was then built, is of similar design to the study of Alexander Campbell, one of the founders of the church. For a number of years Chatauquas were held here. At the present time the tabernacle is used during July and August to accommodate various group conferences from the Capital Area of the church, which includes the church at Ocean View and fifty-one other churches. More land was donated on April 30, 1923 by Hiram J. Penrod. A large two-story building was: erected near the tabernacle, in 1939, to be used as a dormitory and dining-hall.” (1)
