overview

Description:

One of the oldest congregations in Gainesville, the Shady Grove Primitive Baptist church stands on land deeded to the elders of the church in 1900. The present coquina block church was built in the Porters neighborhood in the 1930s. 'Porters Quarters' as it is still called, dates to the late 19th century when Canadian physician, Dr. Watson Porter, platted the addition and sold land exclusively to African American families, encouraging them to plant and cultivate gardens to become self sufficient.
