Gulfside Assembly

Originally called the Gulfside Chataugua and Camp Meeting Ground, Gulfside was founded in 1923 by Robert E. Jones, the first black Methodist Bishop. At the time, it was the only resort in the Gulf Region open to black Methodists. In 1980, Gulfside Assembly was recognized by the United Methodist Church as a historical site.
