Magalia Community Church
13700 Old Skyway
Built 1904

The Magalia Community Church is a simple vernacular Protestant Church, designed and constructed by parishioners using materials of an 1896 church constructed on private property five hundred yards distant from the present site.

The simple rectangular plan of the sanctuary, the foundation of local rubble, and the shed roofed kitchen addition attest to the structure's handcrafted origin. The utilitarian severity is eased through the addition of a belfry, vestibule and other features common to Protestant church design everywhere.
