(Parish Church Square)

This block of the inner town of Liberty was set aside and designated for Catholic use in 1831 by J. Francisco Madero, commissioner for the Mexican state of Coahuila-Texas.

In April 1846, the Methodist Episcopal Church petitioned the town board of trustees for a church site, and a log church was built on the northeast corner of the square. the Methodists relocated to Main Street, 1853.

The southeast corner of the square was granted to the Catholic Church in 1853, and the first of four Catholic churches was built here.
