Schulenburg's Painted Churches Are a Sight to Behold

Schulenburg, Texas is probably best known for its Painted Churches tour. Painted churches, you ask? There are four churches in the communities of Dubina, High Hill, Ammannsville, and Praha surrounding Schulenburg. From the outside, the churches look like many other country churches that dot the Texas landscape. The insides, however, are breathtaking. German and Czech immigrant artisans hand-painted with meticulous detail the artwork that adorns the ceilings and walls of each church. To book a tour of the Painted Churches, call the Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce at (866) 504-5294, or visit them online. Photo courtesy of Paul & Kelly.
