The CH&N Railroad platted the town of McCall in 1909 and named it for C.B. McCall, the general freight and passenger agent at Boca Grande. The town soon contained a turpentine camp, sawmill, store, post office, one-room school house and two churches. Trains would stop and take on water for their boilers from a nearby pond. By 1928, McCall was a non-stop station and cattleman Arthur "A.C." Frizzell purchased the railroad property, demolishing most of the buildings. The intersection of County Road 771 and State Road 776 is the only visible remnant of what was once the town of McCall. 1688 Gasparilla Road, Port Charlotte TRINITY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH A congregation has met at Trinity United Methodist Church continuously since 1873. The first church or- ganized in today's Charlotte County, its members have been an integral part of its history and it represented civilization in a frontier wilderness. 23084 Seneca Avenue, Port Charlotte Take the Heritage Landmark Virtual Tour of Charlotte County's historic sites: https://bit.ly/378aI05 Photo courtesy of Diana Harris Mattie Conway and son Owen in front of their house in McCall circa 1929. 11,000 Square feet of Fabulous Finds Introduction The Unique Boutique All Proceeds Benefit The Homeless Coalition We support Families, Veterans, and Adults to alleviate and prevent hunger and homelessness Come see us in our New, BIGGER Better Location! 1931 Tamiami Trail Port Charlotte, FL 33948 adno=3818253-1 adno=3817769-1 Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center Let us be the place you hold your next event!
