The Tabernacle at Oak Bluffs

1879, open-air auditorium. Originally designed to be built of wood, the Tabernacle, one hundred feet high, 130 feet across, and seating more than 3,000, was built with wrought iron and replaced a one-ton tent. On Illumination Night, each August, hundreds of Chinese paper lanterns decorate the Tabernacle and the eaves of surrounding cottages.
