Located on the way up to Wiederkehr Winery - this church has a panoramic view of the valley below & if you know about it, you can see the church from across the valley. It's beautiful!

Beautiful church, but unless someone tells you about it, you won't know that you can stop and check it out. It is open and you are welcomed to come in and take a look around.

While visiting a local winery we passed St. Mary's Catholic Church located on a hill and decided to make a stop.

If you in Ozark or Altus you have to stop here to see the church and the view of Altus from the top. Bring your camera and enjoy.

Worth a stop to see the beautiful paintings and ceiling. The church was built in the early 1900's and is breathtaking. Once outside, enjoy the view from the hilltop. More breathtaking views!

Drive up the hill to St. Mary's. The view is one of the most beautiful in the state of Arkansas. You can see the Arkansas River and at least three different counties. The churchyard is charming.

We always end our wine tasting tour at the church over look. One final taste and some cheese and crackers. Great ending to a fun day trip!

My Mom, whose parents were immigrants from Germany, was born in Altus, Arkansas in 1917. She was baptized at St. Mary's and went to church and school there until she moved away as an adult. Many of my family who stayed there their entire lives are buried in the cemetery next to the church. The last time I went there... More
