Long Description:

The Octagon Tabernacle is also know as the Falcon Tabernacle or the Little Tabernacle. It was built in 1898.

The structure was built by Methodist layman J.A. Culbreth as a place to hold community prayer meetings. The wood came from trees in the area blown down by a tornado. Since he had been sanctified in a tent meeting in 1896, Culbreth built it in an octagon shape to be as much like a tent as possible. It was here on January 31, 1911 that delegates from the Fire-Baptised Holiness Association and the Pentecostal Holiness Church of North Carolina met to form the present International Pentecostal Holiness Church. It was restored and moved to its present location in 1975. The original site was nearby at Culbreth Memorial Church.
