More Photos

Gethsemane Church, in Austin, Texas, was the first Lutheran Church in Travis County. This Gothic Revival style building, typical of many rural Swedish churches, was erected by Swedish pioneers in 1883. It contains stone hauled in wheelbarrows from the Texas Capitol building that burned in 1881. The building is located on North Congress Avenue between the State Capitol and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, and now houses offices of the Texas Historical Commission.
