Shepherdsville, Kentucky: Midget Mountain - Gospel Campground

Religious camp with smaller than normal "houses" that may propagate a legend about a little people enclave. Doorways don't need to be tall when you're kneeling!

Tiny houses.

Midget Mountain - Gospel Campground

Peculiar tiny houses.

[Angela, 08/27/2016]

These have shed some comedic charm in the midst of an actual, serious Tiny House Movement....

Diminutive cottage.

Midget Mountain - Gospel Campground

This mysterious place is filled with tiny houses with half-sized doors and a creepy central meeting hall. There are signs about daily prayer schedules but it is always abandoned. Legend has it that it was originally built to house a community of small people and it is now used for a religious camp for the "Gospel of The Kingdom" church.

[KentuckYeti, 07/08/2010]

Visitors should be respectful; one sign reads: "We welcome every child of GOD interested in the furtherance of GODS cause."

Tiny Town? - Vague Recollections

Off of US 44 in Shepardsville, Kentucky is a strange little Christian camp ground consisting of what appears to be mini houses. Does anyone know anything about this oddity?

[Cyn Rutledge, 12/02/2001]

Amanda reports: "The tiny houses are used by the out of state members of the church. They stay there when they have church "get togethers."
