The United Methodist Church, a well-kept white framed church, is located in
Flatonia Texas, a small community of about 1,300 people.
This was the only stained glass I could see.
The Texas Historical plaque provided the only history I could find on the church.
Even the historical plaque seems vague using these words, "Founded about 1855".
I'm thinking first came the tree...then, the sidewalk.
Nice to see how they saved the tree
Before closing with this post,
I would like you to check (Czech) out the heritage
of many of the residents.
With the Czech heritage in abundance here,
the Czech language has been passed down through the generations, as is
in most of the towns that surround where I live.
Nearly 100 early settlements in Texas had Czech names,
with half still in existence today.
The Czhilispiel Festival
has a very interesting story of how it was started,
to fund a local student's medical education.
to read about it.
linking today with
to view other churches, synagogues, cemeteries,
and other religious buildings
from a round the world.
