The website is dedicated to sharing the history of Asbury Grove, a Christian camp meeting community founded in 1859, located in the town of Hamilton, part of magnificent Essex County, Massachusetts. Our goal is to support Asbury Grove through education, highlighting the conservation of our architectural heritage, preservation of our archives, fundraising activities, and encouraging community participation in sharing this ongoing story. The AGHS website presents a variety of educational resources that connect visitors to the history of this historically Methodist camp meeting community, and encourages people to participate in the programs and fellowship that we offer today. Visitors of all faiths are welcome to view this important slice of American history.
The National Register of Historic Places has listed Asbury Grove (Asbury Grove Historic District) in recognition of the religious, architectural, and cultural significance of its long history and strong heritage.
