The "Painted Churches" of southern Fayette County feature ornate altars, intricately painted and stenciled ceilings and arches, and stained glass windows. The tour includes St. Mary's (High Hill), St. John the

Baptist (Ammannsville), Sts. Cyril & Methodist (Dubina) and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Praha).


            Early churches were crude, wooden structures, not intended to stand for years. By the late 1800s, communities were well-established, and the newcomers turned their attention to more intricate, elaborate designs. It was this emphasis that resulted in the construction of these churches in Fayette County, known as the Painted Churches. Fortunately, these churches have been preserved for us to treasure and enjoy.
