Search Bandera Texas

Built in 1882 by Jose Policarpo "Polly" Rodriquez, this picturesque church still stands in the tree-covered hills of Bandera County on Privilege Creek. Rodriquez gained fame as a scout for the Army, an Indian fighter, a guide, a hunter and a minister. He joined the Methodist Church and was a licensed Methodist minister. He built this church with his own hands. The chapel is about six miles southeast of Bandera, off Texas Hwy 16.
