Richmond in Fort Bend County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Calvary Episcopal Church
This congregation grew out of Episcopal Missionary efforts that began soon after Texas gained its independence from Mexico. In 1859, through the effort of Judge W.E. Kendall, the first church building was erected and the church became a parish. Early clergy included the Rev. Hannibal Pratt and the Rev. William T. Dalzell. Members have included statesman Mirabeau B. Lamar and many descendants of early Texas colonists. The congregation's rich heritage provides a significant link to the early history of the Episcopal Church in Texas.
Erected 1984 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 8983.)
