In 1896, Christian Israelites from the New House of Israel community began leaving Port Huron, Michigan, in anticipation of the imminent return of Christ as preached by their leader, George Sutton. These faithful believers relocated to 144 acres in East Texas and referred to their new home as Israel. This paper explores the history and eschatology of this small sect of Christian Israelites.
