Mount Calvary Baptist Church

The Mount Calvary Baptist Church is a historic church at 11229 Kendall Road in Orange, Virginia. Built in 1892, it is a well-preserved example of a rural church built for African-Americans during the Jim Crow era. It is a frame structure with a metal roof and a projecting square tower topped by a pyramidal roof. The main entrance is at the center of the tower, set in a pointed-arch opening, matching those of windows on the facade on either side. Also on the property is a graveyard, established about 1919, with about 100 marked graves.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.
