PRAISE! From Tents to Temples - West Orange County Houses of Worship

A retrospective of Winter Garden’s historic churches.

Faith communities representing a wide spectrum of traditions
were established in West Orange County by the region’s selers.
Services held in private residences or even outdoors sustained
and nourished pioneers challenged by life in their new home and
provided a spiritual bond with the congregations they bid
farewell to when they moved here.
Small wooden church buildings soon gave way to brick buildings
erected in the towns and communities of Winter Garden,
Oakland, Gotha, Ocoee, Windermere, and Beulah.
African American workers established their own religious faith
groups, oen worshiping at places where they labored such as
turpentine stills and open fields.
This exhibit features images of religious structures in West
Orange County dating from the 19th century through today.
