Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church

Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church - Organized in 1895. The first church served as both a school & a church for this community. After storm damage, assuming a hurricane, this second church was built in 1938 & still served as a school & a church until 1965. A newer, more modern church was then built next door. Desegregation plans for Long Beach Schools initiated in church annex in 1965. (Loosely quoted from the sign posted on property by the Long Beach Historical Society & Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church)
