Central Baptist Church prays its miracles will continue
Placeholder Image
It took several years to build the present Central Baptist Church building on Gainesville’s southside because it ran into the Great Recession in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The membership itself was stretched financially and had to call on the community at large to help complete the building. Some of the beautiful, priceless, hand-rolled stained-glass windows are dedicated to nonmembers such as Judge A.C. Wheeler and William Malone Johnson, whose families donated money along with the church’s Women’s Missionary Society.
