Primera Iglesia Bautista de Coral Park (First Baptist Church of Coral Park)
Miami, FL
I believe this First Baptist Church building is used for a pre-school/kindergarten program. The building originally housed Temple Or Olom. The temple was built in 1959 and this concrete construction was added later. It is believed that it was meant to represent the whale from the story of Jonah and the Whale. [map]
