St. Hedwig is a place that has a rich and wonderful
history with many sites worthy of historical designation. On
the occasion of the 150th anniversary, two historical
plaques were situated on the parish grounds.
The first one,
donated by the Catholic Life Insurance Branch of St. Hedwig, was
placed in front of the brick entryway of our church. It is a
tribute to the founders of Saint Hedwig and the Annunciation of
the BVM Parish.
The second plaque is
the State Historical Site - designated for the Annunciation of
the BVM Cemetery, to honor ancestors buried here. All the
historical research and paperwork was accomplished and
submitted to the Texas Historical Commission by Regina and Allen
Kosub. The marker was unveiled on May 17, 2007.
