Historic Interior Design in Churches

by Lisa Stewart 15 Dec 2018

Ornately painted designs lift the spirit.

The inspirational designs covering the interiors of this House of God were created by German immigrants seeking solace during the late 1800’s. The immigrants fled persecution and survived hardships and sorrows, but persevered because of their faith. The Painted Churches of Texas were constructed with the same beauty and craftsmanship as the old-world German churches. After their pilgrimages the churches became peaceful anchors in the immigrants’ new world and reminders of their homeland. People now come from all over the world to experience the wonder of these five places of worship just a few hours northwest of Houston.
