Every year, old Saint Mary church in League City has an open house as part of the League City Historical Society Historic Homes Tour. Thanks to hard working volunteers, old Saint Mary was restored in the mid-1990's after years of neglect. Restoration took 5 years, and today the church is used mainly for weddings.
This simple Gothic Revival-style church was built in 1910. Bolts, rather than nails were used to assemble the rafters. Records show Mr. League gave the land at the corner of Main and Colorado for the construction of a church at the same time as the League Park and Little Green school House sites, ensuring the citizens of League City places to worship, learn and play.
The League City Historical Society also features Old Saint Mary with a piece on "100 Years 1910-2010"!
The season of Lent provides an opportunity to display the antique paintings that have been hanging in the Old Saint Mary church in League City. Dedicated in 1910, Old Saint Mary was originally founded as a missionary church and was fully restored in the 1990′s. This video has been dedicated to Don Mize, a longtime volunteer worker at Old Saint Mary’s who was essential in obtaining the Texas Historical markers for this church. Don passed away during the making of my video.
