The church building dates back to 1871 when the parish was established. The interior was remodeled in 1979 to correspond with the directives of Vatican Council II. Mount Carmel church was built exclusively of native woods, with cypress doors, window and doorframes, while the beams and columns are solid longleaf pine. It is said that General P. T. G. Beauregard designed the plans. A local family donated the semi-circular window with the church's title over the main entrance in 1951.
