Description

Located near the intersection with Bradford Road. The building was sold when the Betton Place development started, and it became the Haystack (a women's apparel store). Later (1993) it housed the Planned Furnishings and the Chrysalis Decorative Fabrics stores.

Accompanying note: "Dr. John Maguire, secretary of the Florida Baptist Convention, will be the principal speaker at dedication services of the new Thomasville Road Baptist Church. Others on the program scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, are Dr. G. A. Leichliter and the Rev. Dave Alderman. The new auditorium is valued at $50,000."
