Red River Meeting House

The Red River church grounds and cemetery are open to the public. The church was known as the Red River Cumberland Presbyterian Church. During the year people come from various parts of the country to participate in the reenacting of life on the frontier. In October of 2007, the BBC crossed the big pond to America just to spend the day filming life at the Red River Museum. Should you need additional information about this unique and historic place call 270-586-7632.


The original Red River Presbyterian church was located near Red River, near Maulding Fort, and about three miles northeast of Adairville, Kentucky. Maulding's Fort was built in 1780 by early Scotch-Irish settlers for protection against the Indians. Graves and gravestones in the churchyard of Red River tell their own story. They mark the resting places of many of those who came, principally by way of two ports: Philadelphia and Charleston, to Kentucky through Virginia and North Carolina. The tombstone of one man born in the highlands of Scotland bears an inscription of the Twenty-third Psalm written in Gaelic. Generals, Colonels, Majors and other soldiers who fought in our country's wars from the beginning are buried there. There is even the grave of one who fought in the Battle of Waterloo. But more important than the graveyard are the events that took place in the church which not only changed the hearts of men but changed the moral future of our nation.
