Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, West Palm Beach

Founded in 1893, the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church is one of the finest architectural jewels of the city. Designed in the Romanesque Revival style, it housed the first school for African Americans in West Palm Beach. Informally known as "God's House on the Hill," the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church still plays an active role in the life of the African American community. It regularly hosts an array of events and educational activities both for children and adults. The Tabernacle was successfully renovated in 2004, after suffering damages mounting to $1 million due to Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.
