Stained Glass Church Tour

Date: Mar 19 - Apr 02, 2022
Sacred Heart Catholic Church was dedicated on June 18, 1893. This beautiful historic church, built in the Victorian Gothic style, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It is one of five churches in Texas built in this architectural style. The 675,000 bricks for the church were molded by hand and baked on-site from mud brought by wagon from the Trinity River. The historic building has plastered interior walls, varnished oak, and knotty pine. The ceiling, made of pine, has no nails; wooden pegs hold it together.
The 40 pews in the sanctuary and altar rail are original to the church.
The stained glass windows are from Italy and France, many donated in honor or memory of local families.
