This old church was built in 1896 and is on Old US-441 south of Mount Dora right behind a Circle K convenience store. Thousands of motorists go by every day and probably don't even notice it. It is located in Orange County just south of the Lake County line.
I don't know much about the history of this church, but someone told me today that their membership is down to only 6 people. It seems a shame, because that small number of people probably can't raise the money to restore the church or keep it in good repair.
Is this a part of our history that we are about to lose? Does any visitor to Florida Backroads Travel know anything about the church? Please let us know.
Maybe there is some way we can help save this old church.
