Marker Text Organized 1892. Present church was erected in 1918 to replace structure destroyed by cyclone. Lindsay settlers, Germans whose lives centered in the church, furnished much manual labor for the building and saved old windmill towers to be used as reinforcements in concrete. The interior is lavishly decorated with unusual frescoes, stained-glass windows, and carved altars. Swiss artist was Fridolin Fuchs. Architecture is neo-Romanesque. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark--1970.
