The Episcopal Diocese of Florida organized a mission church in 1878 to provide a location that could serve seasonal guests. Visitors and residents from Green Cove Springs raised over $1000 to build the church. On March 10, 1879, the Church held its first service. This location is notable because it would eventually be added to U.S. National Register of Historic Places (February 17, 1978).
