Many hours were spent looking for the history on the designated Texas Historical Church. Even the church home page listed no history.
What I do know....the building was originally built with local quarry stone and native timbers.
The stone building was completed in 1894.
It was not recorded as a Texas Historic Landmark until 1971.
The church building was closed on the day I stopped by to photograph.
The best history I could find on this lovely stone church came from a collection of photos taken after a fire in 2002.

Thank you so much for sharing that. It is beautiful! And it makes me want to know more too! It is so interesting that some parts of history get recorded and others don't--although lack of information can certainly inspire us too!ReplyDelete
