Our Lady of Guadalupe

Site of the first Roman Catholic Church in Alpine. Deeded to the Diocese of San Antonio in 1896 by father and son Daniel and Thomas O. Murphy. The original adobe church building was dedicated November 19, 1902, by the Rev. A.J. Forest, Bishop of San Antonio, attended by Father Nicholas Brocardus, pastor of the Alpine parish, and assisted by Father Joseph Hoban of Ft. Davis. In 1914, the church became part of the newly established Diocese of El Paso. Father Manuel Cuadrado was assigned as the first resident priest in 1916. In 1917, the name was changed to Our Lady of Peace. After the new rock church was constructed in 1943, the original adobe church building was used as the Parish Hall until 1963, when it was razed and replaced with the current Parish hall building dedicated on July 15, 1964.
