When we think of historic buildings in Wichita Falls places like the Holt Hotel, Big Blue, the World's Smallest Skyscraper and the Wichita Theatre come to mind. But there is a whole other set of buildings that are tied deeply to the history and families of our city; our historic churches.

With that in mind the Wichita County Heritage Society is presenting the Historic Church Tour of Wichita Falls this Saturday (May 4th).
