Richland, Texas

09 Aug


According to Rains County records, Richland is the only African American Community in Point. It is also where the Richland School was located, the Richland Baptist Church and the Benton Hill Cemetery are located.  Just up the road a short drive off of FM 514 northeast of Point, here stands this church where I sat for a while in my car under a shade tree.  The best information I found on the web is on the Rains County history site.  But I think the best history remains in the congregation of this church.

    I love these little old out of the way places. Great pictures and even better story.

    Country churches reflect so much about country, village life. Congregations, as you write, are really the history. They have modified their church over the years and the steeple still stands. I’m sure they have Broadman hymnals in the pews.
