::  St. Agnes' Episcopal Church
1750 NW 3rd Avenue

a. Constructed to house one of Miami's oldest African-American congregations, this church building reflects a mix of architectural styles, including Neo-Classical and Mission style elements. The interior ornamentation is particularly noteworthy and includes an ornately carved marble altar from the congregation's original church and
detailed ceiling. Although the building foundation was laid in 1923, a variety of setbacks delayed its construction, and the first service in the new sanctuary of St. Agnes' Episcopal Church was held in 1930. St. Agnes' Episcopal Church has served the religious and humanitarian needs of Miami's African-American community for many years, and it remains an active center in the Overtown area.
