Since the Easter Season is upon us, Sunya and I thought you would enjoy taking a tour of some of our beautiful and historic Fredericksburg churches.
As usual, we will begin our walk at Century 21 Sunset, Realtors Office. Our location in the Fredericksburg’s Historic District is in easy walking distance of a number of historic and magnificent Hill Country Churches.
From our office we walk west on Main St. just a couple of blocks to find Zion Lutheran Church at the end of the block, on the corner of W. Main and Edison. Zion Luthern Church is steeped in history. Built in 1852, this beautiful structure features a tall steeple with spectacular night lighting. I can hear the melodious evening bells from Zion at my house on West Austin Street. Those beautiful bells take you back to “times gone by”.
From Zion we walk south on Edison St., and then head east on San Antonio Street. After crossing Milam Street, you start to see the extensive St. Mary’s Catholic Church Complex. St. Mary’s Catholic School is on the south side of the street and the main St. Mary’s Church is located on the north side of the street. Services are currently held in the pictured building which was built in 1906.
A street banner announces that though Holy Ghost Luthern Church may have it’s roots in the past, it’s offerings and programs relate to the present.
