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.
