St Paul's Episcopal Church
Federal Point, Florida
Capt. Edwin Smith in 1880 petitioned John Freeman Young Episcopal bishop of Florida, for permission to start the
mission. On June 7, 1882 the contract was made to build the church for $1,000.00 There is no record of how much
money was raised by selling the alligator eggs, but church historians said that "beautiful stained glass windows were
manufactured in Buffalo, N. Y., and placed in the church for the service on Dec. 2, 1883." The bell was purchased in
1892 for $32.00. The parish house was constructed in 1951.
