Churches are rich with history, and Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist is no different. This nearly 150-year-old church still meets today under granddaddy live oak trees and shares a connection in Ocala history that includes the Seminoles, an impactful black history as an early school, a place using natural landmarks including Nellie's pond, and is even connected to famed thoroughbred farms. Join us for a tour and history lesson. This class will meet at the church at 5000 SW College Rd.
