The pews sit empty. Their worn handrails and high seat backs have seen many years of life, death and everything in between. Their construction is simple and unassuming... not unlike the entire structure. But despite their overall simplicity, they each convey a power and sense of history that one can feel when walking in the front doors.
This, one of the oldest former church structures left in the Burton community sits awaiting its next chapter of life. Thanks to the countless work through the past 34 years, a few devoted volunteers have paved the way for this new era and the Burton Heritage Society wants to carry that wonderful legacy forward. Please help us make THIS the year we restore the structure and ensure its survival for generations to come!
And you have a great opportunity to help by coming out to Burton on March 11 for Texas Ranger Day... our annual fundraiser where ALL funds will go to restore this historic gem. Visit our "celebrate" tab for all the event details!
See you soon!
