Trinity Lutheran Church

-A A +A
1928. U.S. 290 E, 1 mile east of Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

Replacing a 1904 predecessor, the present church is a frame Gothic Revival structure that has the unusual distinction of being completely clad in pressed-metal siding designed to read as small, regularly sized blocks of rock-faced masonry. The interior of the church is quite plain with the exception of its decorative pressed-metal ceiling.
