Blanco: Mount Horeb Baptist Church

Established in 1874 to serve the residents of Peyton Colony, a Freedmen’s Community, Mount Horeb Baptist Church demonstrates some common architectural features of African American churches of that era: twin towers that flank the entrance and tall, arched windows along the side. Nearby, along FM 165, the people of Peyton Colony built a lime kiln to make the ingredients necessary for mortar. Some of the buildings still standing in Blanco County were built with mortar from this kiln.
