Description

Trinity United Methodist Church (UMC), located at 526 South Sanford Avenue in Georgetown, an historic African-American neighborhood in Sanford, Florida in 2012. Trinity Church was originally named the New Mount Zion Colored Methodist Episcopal (CME) Church and dates back to the early 1890s. Currently located at the corner of South Sanford Avenue and East Sixth Street, Trinity UMC first held their services at the home of church member Violet Graham at East Sixth Street and Hickory Avenue. Following a donation made by the all-white Methodist Episcopal Church, services were relocated to a building erected on a lot on the northwest corner of East Sixth Street and Sanford Avenue. In the 1920s, a new church was designed and built by the famed African-American architect Prince W. Spears. The church was listed in early city directories as Trinity Methodist Church at the northwest corner of South Sanford Avenue and East Sixth Street. Trinity Church was listed with the address 520 S. Sanford Ave. in 1947 and 550 S. Sanford Ave. in 1975.
