Ancient City Baptist Church

Ancient City Baptist Church was organized January 20, 1887 with 18 charter members. The tan brick sanctuary with its Norman tower and oval stained glass windows was dedicated on February 2, 1896.

Henry Flagler gave the lot with the following condition – the congregation had only 2 years to qualify for the gift by erecting their house of worship at a cost of not under $10,000-debt free. The final cost was $14,345.37 and the congregation met Flagler’s challenge and was “debt-free”. It was renovated in 1953, and again in 2003, when a group of men from the church led by retired glass craftsman Dee Tarrant repaired the original stained glass windows and designed new matching windows where they were needed.
