Landscape, ideology, and religion : a geography of Ocean Grove, New Jersey

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. examines a religious community established in 1869 by Methodist Church as a camp meeting site. The founders selected a location and designed the physical and cultural landscapes according to an ideology of perfectionism, autonomy, exclusion, and homogeneity. Even though the community has experienced dramatic changes in the last fifty years, the A. argues that the physical, cultural, and political geography of Ocean Grove has served to perpetuate this ideology
