Waldo Methodist

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Lawtey, Florida (Alachua County)
First United Methodist Church, Waldo, Florida (Alachua County)

When I typically drove through Waldo, Florida, its main claim to fame was notoriety as a Florida speed trap for drivers on Highway 301 through the center of the state.  That practice recently ended with a law change and the eventual elimination of the small police force in town.  I did pull over when passing through town for a better reason, to take a few photos of the First United Methodist Church, built in 1910.  It’s part of the town’s National Register of Historic Places entry.  The town peaked in the late 1800s as a railroad town and has been fairly stagnant since World War II.  The church above was no longer in use at the time of the photo.
