BARTOW – In 1867, Jacob Summerlin donated land to what would someday become the city of Bartow for two churches, a public school and a county courthouse.

“I was not totally sure,” Pastor Armando Rodriguez said Saturday at the History Fair, that this church was 150 years old. “Sometimes the information can be inaccurate.”
