Rev. Fred Glisson

Methodist minister Rev. Fred Glisson discovered Cane Creek Falls while scouting the area to find a site for a youth camp. The first camp was held in the summer of 1925, with campers living in rough wooden cabins and sleeping on straw-filled mattresses. The cooking was done on wood stoves, and water had to be hauled from a nearby spring.

“The friends I made there are still my closest. My life’s direction was set there. Our family sent 3 generations there.
Glory to God for this holy place!”
