St. Stephens Episcopal Church

website called Alcottfarm.net, written by Beth Yarbrough of North Carolina, may seem as if it would have no connection to Liberty County, and yet, strangely enough, it does.  You see, Beth Yarbrough has a sister-site called Southern Voices, a website dedicated to the wonderful old structures across the southern United States, from the grand to the simple, her website is filled with the stories and photos of these wonderful old homes, buildings, and homesteads.  That brings us to how Liberty county fits in, the former artist and now author Beth Yarbrough was traveling through Texas collecting research for a book she was working on about the pirate Jean Laffite.  Well let her pick up the story from there

          Audio:

In the facebook post that drew our attention to this wonderful website and woman, Beth Yarbrough posted the following:  The little white frame church sits just outside the Texas town of Liberty. I found it late on an afternoon in January at the end of a harrowing drive across the Gulf Coast from New Orleans. Rain had come in spewing sideways sheets for three hours, the road was choked with transfer trucks (whose own spray made the blowing rain exponentially worse), and to top it all off, construction had turned long stretches of the blacktop into bone-rattling washboard.  Suffice it to say the last thing on my mind when I rolled into Liberty was finding something wonderful to photograph. I was just hoping for a cup of coffee and some good advice on how to get to Austin without having to deal with Houston.  And then the rain stopped, and there stood the little church, back-lit by a sky that seemed to be heaving a sigh of relief. It sits on the grounds of the Sam Houston Regional Library and Research Center just outside Liberty - unused today but preserved as a reminder of simpler times. I can't speak to what it did for the faithful flock when it was in use, but I can say for sure that it was a little beacon of hope to one of God's children on a day when she needed it the most, and to honor what it did for my frazzled little heart on that cold afternoon, I have given it the place of honor as the January image in my 2020 Southern Churches Calendar.  The calendar Southern Churches which features the St. Stephens Episcopal church as one of its months for the year 2020 is available now at alcottfarm.net
