Farewell 2009, farewell Bible conference dorms

Before there was a Prime Outlets in Ellenton or an ice skating palace, there was a Bible conference center in the neighborhood, located just up the road at 7215 U.S. 301 North.

The dormitories, some built more than 50 years ago to house the visitors, had fallen into disrepair in recent years.

Today, the dilapidated buildings were demolished, removing a safety hazard.

Still standing is the old Victory Chapel, now home to My Father's Place. And the distinctive concrete-block billboard out front is still standing, too, for now.
