Long Description:
The First Baptist Church of Boca Grande, located at 421 4th Street West, Boca Grande, Florida, is an excellent example of an early 20th Century Carpenter Gothic Revival church with a Combination Plan interior.

Completed in 1915, the church is well preserved and minimally altered. The church is of balloon frame construction with original beveled wood siding on the exterior and is covered by an intersecting gable roof dominated by a wood frame bell tower containing the original church bell. Original lancet windows pierce each elevation.
