Wes Cox writes: My Great-Grandmother had this made (the neon cross on the front porch of the church), though I am not sure what some of my family thought of it. I believe she had it made in the very late 1940s. She played the pump organ at Providence Church for years. This is a beautiful place. The original Providence Church congregation met in a church on Old Post Road, several miles to the west. In 1856 the congregation moved to this new structure, which was damaged in a hurricane in 1922 I believe. The whole structure leans slightly to the right ever since the hurricane. The original church structure on Old Post Road was much older, and was used by other Methodist congregations until it burned, either in the 1920s or 1930s.
