Old St. Ann's Church

Dedicated March 15, 1898, on the southeast comer of Rosemary and Datura Streets. In 1902, it was moved to this site donated by Henry Flagler and served the Catholic community until 1913, when the new church was dedicated. The old church was then used as the forerunner of St. Ann's School built in 1925. St. Ann's Church is the oldest Catholic church and parish in the Diocese of Palm Beach. It was developed by the fathers of the Society of Jesus. Marker placed by Seminole Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, 1986.
