Painted churches, Texas

October 3, 2010 1 comment

We joined the Traveling Supremes on a rolling rally starting in Schulenburg, TX.  This area has a strong German and Czech heritage.  Within a short driving trip you can find 6 churches dating back to the 1800’s, all with excellent craftmanship and especially colors, hence “painted churches”.  Here are a few highlights.

Elaborate ceiling decorations

Each church has their own distinct style
