1950 - the Church of the Epiphany Episcopal, Hialeah

Palm Avenue and E. 8th Street, Hialeah, Florida


Services were held in the Hialeah Theatre, located on the east side of Palm at 8th Street. Rose says: "It lost the roof in the 1936 Hurricane and we went to the kids' cowboy movies on Saturday afternoon anyway. It was just as normal as if the roof was there. We had an amateur hour every Saturday afternoon preceding the cowboy movie. I used to sing and sometimes won the 5 bucks!!! The Church of the Epiphany was the only Episcopal Church in Hialeah and we were in the old theatre for a year while the Church was being built (it's the huge building on the corner of Okeechobee Rd. and West 4th Ave (I think)."
