Inscription.  

In 1864, Bishop Alexander Gregg organized an Episcopal Mission in Navasota that became a Parish in 1866. Originally known as the Church of the Holy Comforter, it was renamed in 1870, when the church building from St. Paul's in Washington (7 mi. Sw) was acquired and relocated to Navasota on land donated by the Houston and Texas Central railway. The congregation completed a new church building in 1891. Throughout its history, St. Paul's has been actively involved in the community with worship, education, and outreach programs.
 
Erected 1991 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 8612.)
