The present beautiful edifice was erected in 1878-9, Rev. Thos. Beecher preaching the dedication sermon April 3rd, 1879. It is the finest and best arranged church edifice in the county, and outside the large cities, one of the very best in the state. It has an excellent auditorium, semi-circular seats and radiating aisles, seating 500 on the floor and 300 in the gallery.(Submitted on January 30, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
