FROM THE POLK COUNTY HISTORICAL & GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY provided to USGENWEB
On July 13, 1847, Cary A. Armstrong donated one and one-fourth acres of land to William Henry, James Douglass, Alvin Logan, and Euclid Waterhouse, trustees of the Ocoee Cumberland Presbyterian Church upon which the Cumberland Shed was build. The floor was covered with straw and services were conducted in the form of a camp meeting. When church services extended into the evening, candles were used to light the interior and the outside was kept bright by burning pine knots. The constituency of the church finally became so large that Shed was expanded to accommodate 1,000 persons.
