Intercession City Bible College

Built in 1924-1925, the Interocean Hotel located on Highway 17-92 seven miles south of Kissimmee, Florida; sat empty the year following completion.

It stood vacant for almost ten years until Miss Ossie England, a former teacher from Ohio and affiliated with The Household of Faith, took it over about 1934, opening it as a Bible training school for ministers and missionaries. The town name changed from Interocean City to Intercession City with residents lending moral and financial support to the institution.
