Smallest Church in America

“1 of the tiniest churches in America”

The Smallest Church in America was built in 1949 by Mrs. Agnes Harper and is "deeded to Jesus Christ." It is located on US 17 north of South Newport. It's probably not the smallest.. but it's pretty darn small. Signs help you find the place. Area nearby to sit and have lunch.

This small church has chairs that will sit 6 on each side. The church is a small white building about 10'x20'. A bell tower (proportional in size to the church) was added to the church in 1998. There are stained glass windows on either side and the back wall.

Seeing America's smallest, biggest, best, worst, weirdest, etc, should be a no brainer for all roadtrippers so be sure to mark this one on your map (correction: app). Plus, you get to ring the cool bell beside the church.. try resisting that temptation!

Neat stop right off I95. I concur with Ms. Jenkins. The church is no where near the icon on the mobile app map. It is located off the northbound lane of HWY 17 just about a mile south of I95 exit 67. There is also a geocache at the site.

Great roadside stop. Unfortunately, recent vandalism caused original church to burn down;however, God's people are stepping up and rebuilding it!!
We met Pat Young, the church caretaker, super nice man! We also met several volunteers there who welcomed us with Gods love, smiles, and warm chili. Can't wait to visit again and see this beautiful place rebuilt! Should be ready 1/1/16.

GPS from this site is incorrect. Church is off exit 67 from 95. Take 17S. Church is on left about a mile ish down the road.

I had a hard time finding it because my GPS took me way out of the way. Other than that, it was a nice stop. Only one other car was there. It's still being rebuilt but looks to be almost done.
