The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) announced the county photos selected to be featured in their 2019 FAC Calendar: Old Florida. Santa Rosa County Assistant Public Information Officer Sarah Whitfield's photo of Adventures Unlimited Outdoor Center's historic Coldwater Creek Chapel will be featured as December 2019.

The chapel was established in 1901 in north Santa Rosa County. In the following 112 years, it endured two moves and severe damage from Hurricane Ivan. After several years of restoration, the chapel began a new life at Adventures Unlimited where it has been used for weddings, receptions, meetings and a place of worship since 2016. 

The 2019 FAC calendar photo submission contest was held over the summer and all of Florida’s 67 counties were asked to submit their best history photos or photos of their favorite historic site in their county with more than 300 photos being submitted.
