There is a teeny town in northeast Texas Hill Country, right next to Kerrville, called Ingram. It was the first time since being in Texas that I saw actual hills. (“Hill Country” is a misnomer… what they call hills in Texas, they don’t acknowledge as a change in elevation in California.)
Ingram is home to fewer than 2,000 people, and there’s a large gap in the population between the upper and lower income brackets. One of two things generally define the two: lots of silver jewelry from a local, quasi-famous jewelry shop, or lots of tattoos and piercings. The people weren’t as openly friendly as much of the Texas country. They stick to themselves, but many are friendly once they decide you’re okay.
Below are several photos from around town. The captions tell the story. The cute tiny church is at the end.
Another Tiny Church
Now we come to my favorite part. This is a tiny church on a private property. They host weddings, and seasonal church services for folks who live there.
I don’t know what happened to my pics of the inside – it’s really cute and made to look like a church from the 1800’s. This one isn’t as small as some of the other tiny churches I’ve seen, but it definitely qualifies. If you missed those posts, see the tiny church in Luverne, MN, and the tiny church in Warrenton, TX.
