Texas is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful churches in the country. Architectural styles have been influenced by southern culture, Roman Gothic styles of architecture, Art Deco styles, and famous architects such as O’Neil Ford and Nicholas Clayton.

Many of Texas churches, both old and modern, are home to stunning stained glass windows. Colorful and luminous, stained glass windows are often viewed as the soul of a church, opening up its inner walls to the heavens and the sky. For centuries, stained glass has held its prominence in religious settings and Texas churches are no exception, especially since some of the oldest churches are hundreds of years old.
