Many people are familiar with Houston’s historic architecture and iconic skyscrapers. But did you know that Houston is also home to another treasure? Beautiful stained glass windows are hidden throughout the city in Houston’s residential, religious, and commercial buildings. We decided to take a look further into these hidden gems tucked away in the Magnolia City to see what exactly we could find.

The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston was the first municipal art museum in Texas. It’s well known for its collection of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art and its Baroque and Renaissance works. But it also contains one of the most beautiful works produced by Louis Comfort Tiffany. “A Wooden Landscape in Three Panels” proudly displays Tiffany’s ability to execute excellent copper foiling and perfect leading through a whimsical forest landscape.

Historic Stained Glass at the Temple Beth Tikvah in Clear Lake

The original home of the stained glass windows at the Temple Beth Tikvah was actually in Pennsylvania. The windows belonged to the B’nai Israel Synagogue but eventually made their way to a Texas home. In 2008, Hurricane Ike hit and though much of the town of Galveston was destroyed, the windows survived. The windows have since been restored with new glass and leading and have found their home in the temple located in Clear Lake.

Our Lady of Walsingham Religious Stained Glass

Our Lady of Walsingham received its name from Friar Ramsey who had rescued a stained glass window from our burnt our church in Malawi that displayed the image of the Lady of Walsingham. Naturally, stained glass was incorporated into the architecture of the church. The windows were designed by Willet Studios in Philadelphia. There are over 25 windows located in the church, each of which are expertly crafted and designed.
