Bloys Cowboy Camp Meeting in 1890s

Rev. Dr. W. B. Bloys, a Presbyterian home missionary, arrived in Fort Davis in 1888 and made his rounds to cow camps and ranch homes. The Bloys Camp Meeting, the original Cowboy Camp Meeting was first held October 10, 1890 when a small group of cowboys and family members met for worship and fellowship. Dr. Bloys was known as "The Little Shepherd of the Hills" because of the people he served in the Davis Mountain country. The camp meeting he founded continues to this day under his guiding principle that the camp would always be welcome to every denomination.
