This building, constructed in 1944, replaced a wooden structure constructed in 1912 at the same location. It is the only remaining neoclassical structure in downtown and is noted for its dramatic entrance columns. Following Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the church members built another church and the building has subsequently seen many uses.
