The Roman Catholic St. Marys of the Nativity was built by a fellow from Philadelphia who was very active for a short time building up areas in Orange County. The fellow, James Wilcox, built this church as the first built of the Diocese of Orlando. Wilcox was not one to keep property and in this case he deeded the property to Bishop John Moore. Yes, that’s the same Bishop Moore who has a school named after him in Orlando.
