Historic Overtown building destroyed

Site was original home of 112-year old Greater Israel Bethel Primitive Baptist Church

It has existed since Woodrow Wilson was president. One of few historic structures in Overtown, the church building had held numerous weddings, baptisms and Sunday services and had stood years before Booker T. Washington opened as Miami-Dade’s second-oldest public school in 1926.
