This was a nice find during my Big Day o’ Wandering.
This church was established in 1874 to serve the residents of Peyton Colony, a freedmen’s community named after Peyton Roberts, a former slave and one of the first freedmen to settle in the area. Please check out this video to learn more about Freedmen’s Communities in Texas; it is interesting and surely was not taught in Texas history when I was growing up.
