Kelham Kabin

Kelham Baptist Church started going to Falls Creek almost from its inception. In 1935 the first permanent structure was established on the lot donated by Mrs. F. H. (Flora) Hurst, who was loving referred to as "Mother Hurst." She joined Kelham from First Baptist, Wichita, KS, in 1931.

"Kelham Kabin" (where the odd spelling of cabin originated is unknown) was constructed for $1200. To view the original Committee report from the church's minutes, click here. Later, a dining room and fellowship area with kitchen facilities was added as well as a cook's quarters. At one time during the 1950s, a "pastor's cabin" was built behind the cabin, but this was later torn down. Kelham Kabin will sleep about 60 and has smoke detectors, air conditioning (something the old-timers considered a luxury), and emergency exits. The cabin and its furnishings are constantly being evaluated and upgraded as needs require.

The picture below is of Kelham's campers in 1954.

Can you identify any of the faces in this picture of

Kelham's campers from 1969?

(Hint: One guy on the top row recently became a grandfather. Another teaches the College-Career Sunday School Class.

And who wouldn't recognize the woman in the center row with "big" hair"?)

Anybody recognize these handsome young people on their way to Falls Creek?
