St. Mark's Episcopal Church
The cornerstone of St. Mark's was laid in 1859, but the onset of the Civil War delayed construction. Work resumed in 1873 and the first service was held on Easter Sunday in 1875. An interesting note about St. Mark's Episcopal Church is that Lyndon Baines Johnson and Claudia "Lady Bird" Taylor were wed at this location on November 17, 1934. This was also the first Episcopal Cathedral built west of the Mississippi River. The first Sunday service is the 7:45a Holy Eucharist. At 8a, breakfast is offered for a small charge, while another Holy Eucharist is offered at 9a. The children's chapel is also in service at 9a. At 10:10a, an all-age-group Sunday School is offered. The third Holy Eucharist takes place at 11a and is followed by 'Tea Under the Trees'. If you are looking for a traditional Episcopalian service in a very historical church, this may be just the place for you to visit.
This is an amazing piece of architecture. Even if you don't go inside, make sure you get some pictures of it.
Make sure you read about the history of this church. We discovered this while we were on the boat tour.
