Our tour group recently visited this Czech church in Ammannsville. Ammannsville was founded by an Austrian in 1845 but the Czechs are the ones who built this church. There are many statues including the Infant Jesus of Prague on a side altar. The decor is...More

The St. John the Baptist Catholic Church is one of the three painted churches with a few miles of Schulenburg. My husband and I self-toured the church on a Thursday morning at 8:45. A friendly guy was mowing the lawn and stopped to talk with...More

This church is actually in Ammansville, TX, not Shulenburg. Your GPS may even have it in La Grange. If you are headed south from La Grange, visit this church first, then Dubina (St. Cyril and Methodius) , then cross the "piano bridge" and visit High...More

I think I loved this painted church the best! The softness color of it and the statues are beautiful. Must-see in Texas!

One of the TX painted churches. It's a must see. We did our own driving tour of the 4 churches and enjoyed each one.

This Painted Church is a beautiful stop in the line of churches in the area, and it's definitely one not to miss. The adjoining cemetery is lovey to walk through--the small pond gives it such a peaceful atmosphere. I've visited all of the hutches a...More

This church, aka "The Pink Church", was established in 1890, but the church was destroyed in a 1902 hurricane. A second church on the site burned. Today's church was built in 1911. There is no fee to just go and visit by yourself, but a...More
