Copeland, Florida, was once a thriving logging town on the edge of the Everglades in Southwest Florida. The Tidewater Cypress Logging Company harvested virgin cypress trees from the area’s swamps in the 1940s and 1950s. The Beulah Baptist Mission, Copeland’s historic black church, is all that is left and it is slated for demolition.
