1. The Czech Catholic Union of Texas Marker
Inscription.  
Near this site on March 24, 1889 a group of immigrants envisioned the need for a fraternal benefit society to protect their families and to promote their faith and heritage. They founded the Czech Catholic Union of Texas, the KJT (Katolicka Jednota Texaska) which was chartered on July 4, 1889. In celebration of our 100th anniversary and in fond Thanksgiving, this memorial is dedicated to our founding fathers and living and deceased members. By God's grace may our future generations love and preserve the Union!
