If the church ever is open once on a special occasion I would love to tour it

I remember it used to be so cold before

Every time I pass this little church I think what a beautiful wedding chapel.

Beautiful, historic, and needs to be protected at all costs.

I think that the church would make a great wedding venue spot. Get married in the refurbished church...and have a second building that has a reception pavillion/restrooms, and a commercial kitchen to accommodate caterers. Two other structures like air-conditioned over-sized sheds would be a bridal gown shop and a florist.....what a picturesque venue!!

I remember sometime in the last 50s or early 60s a group of Mount Dora Citizens and Merchants repainted the church for the congregation. My Father, Leonard Phillips, Owner of the Mount Dora Western Auto, was one of them and donated all the white paint used. I don't recall if this was a Chamber of Commerce or Rotary Club project, but I think it was one or the other.

Beautiful article about this church. All old buildings especially church's have so much to tell us about the community!

Should be restored and used as a wedding and funeral chapel .

Agree!! Next Saturday November 12, 2016 a group of residents willing to help will clean this iconic place inside and out. Spread the voice!

What a treasured memory...this should continue to be what it was originally - a place of worship!

If there's a Go Fund Me or similar page - I would love to contribute to it's restoration. It's a beautiful structure and an icon of the entrance to the City of Mount Dora.

Hi Mrs Babbs, I have nice old oak church pews to replace the ones the termites got and I would be happy to give you some front doors. Ask Mt Dora Buzz they have my info.

I loved this article! I wish mt dora would pay more attention to its history rather than making it all "new". Thanks for the info

If ever there is a web site for restoration, I would love to receive it. I love that little church!

Excellent article - have often wondered about the church.

I also have passed this church numerous times over these last 9 years and every time I see it I know it's a true reminder of Gods Chapel and Home

I drive by and pray daily this little church could be restored and serve Gods people again.

I love this little Church. Needs to be saved. I would love to donate what is a secure way? Not sure I trust the go fund me site. Please where can I send a donation and feel comfortable doing so. Thank you so much. Joyce

I love to come home to Mt Dora and be welcomed by the Little White Church at the entrance to Mt. Dora. If you need volunteers please contact me @ 561-262-8493. I would love to be a part of the restoration of this beautiful historic landmark and make it a true Welcome Inspiration to Mt. Dora.

I have LOVED that Church since moving here 21 years ago. I took pictures of it, as I do of all places I like here in Mount Dora. I Love this Town, I Pray it’s not going to be ruined by influx of people, who won’t care about it like I do.

I went to the church today to take pictures of the outside and found a weather worn bible on the steps. Does anyone know how it got there?
