Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church
Marfa, Texas

Saint Paul’s, the oldest Protestant church in the Big Bend region, has its roots in a multi denominational Protestant church established by Mary (Walker) Humphris in the 1880's. She was married to John Humphris, who with others established a trading company in Marfa. The church met in their home until they built an adobe building for the Union Protestant Church. In 1897 the Episcopal congregation was authorized to build a separate church, which was Saint Paul’s. Originally it was a mission of the Cathedral Church of Saint John in Albuquerque. The original Saint Paul’s, on the site where the Paisano Hotel now stands, was demolished to build the historic hotel. The current Gothic Revival building, completed in 1930, is of clay tile with river rock veneer.
