Description

Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church, located at 710 Orange Avenue in Georgetown, an African-American community in Sanford, Florida, in 2011. Zion Hope was founded in a brush arbor, under the leadership of Reverend Wash Levingston, on June 9, 1888. After Reverend Joe Richards took over as the first settled pastor, church services were conducted in an old horse stable on Mellonville Avenue from 1888 to 1890. The church relocated to the corner of East Fifth Street and Locust Avenue and converted the original structure into a small, oblong-framed church to accommodate the growing congregation.

This building served the congregation until 1926. A new concrete, stone-block building was then constructed at its current location, on the corner of East Eighth Street and Orange Avenue under the guidance of Reverend Hardy Wesley Williams. Other previous pastors include Reverends Paul Newman, G. W. Phillips, W .A. Jenkins, and John Hurston, the father of award-winning author and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston.
