St Mary's Catholic Church, High Hill, Texas
This is an image of the interior of one of the Painted Churches in the Schulenburg, Texas area – St Mary’s Catholic Church in High Hill, Texas. The Painted Churches were built in the 1800’s in the various German/Czech immigrant communities around Schulenburg. Most of them have a cemetery that is part of the church property where the early settlers are buried. It is incredible that these works of art have been meticulously maintained in these communities for over 100 years. The images I took can't begin to capture the artistry, creativity, craftsmanship, and faith of these early immigrant settlers. This is one of several I will be posting over the next few days of these works of art!
