Throwback Thursday: A Historical Grotto and the Catholic Sisters

Throwback Thursday

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The Rio Grande Valley has seen lots of great architecture over its long history. But perhaps nothing as incredible and beautiful as an old convent built in late 1800’s. It housed Catholic nuns who helped educate Brownsville children for many years. The only part of that great structure that remains is an impressive and historic grotto that tells the story of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word.
