Painted Church - Serbin, Texas

About 50 miles East of Austin in Serbin, Texas is St. Paul Lutheran Church. Serbin was settled in 1854 by almost 600 Wendish immigrants persuing religious freedom led by Pastor Johann Kilian. Built in 1870, St. Paul Lutheran Church is an example of Wendish architecture and culture.  In October, I had the chance to visit Serbin.  Enjoy some of the images I captured during my visit.  Click on an image to see a larger version.

The church looks rather plain when you approach it.
