History

Sts. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church was built in 1876 in Dubina (“Oak Grove” in Czech) on land donated by Joseph Peter. A school was later built on land donated by Ignac Muzny, and the parish grew to over 600 families by 1900. The original church was destroyed by a hurricane in 1909 so the community raised $5,571.90 to build the new church that was constructed in 1912. The new church was topped by an iron cross salvaged from the remains of the old church. The church interior is decorated with frescoes and has stenciling in vivid colors common to the period and German culture. A Feast Day is held every year on the first Sunday in July.

Sts. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church is featured on the Painted Churches Tour and is on the National Register of Historic Places. KLRU-TV broadcast a documentary film entitled The Painted Churches of Texas, Echoes of the Homeland in 2001 which captures the beauty of these painted churches and discusses the people who built them.
