Baptist Church, Cleburne, TX

May 23, 2017

Even communities of moderate size in Texas are thick with Baptist churches; I count six on google.maps for Cleburne’s 29,000 citizens.

The East Henderson Street Baptist church cornerstone was laid in 1907 but it took nearly three years before holding their first service under that stilted dome. The columned street elevation sits on a tall plinth, giving the building a decided Roman quality. The building stood until 1960 but may have been abandoned for a newer facility some years prior.
