History

The immigrants began arriving at Indianola, Texas in early December 1854.

The town's identity as an insular Polish enclave was sealed by four factors:

#Bypass by the railroad,

#Union (American Civil War) sympathy (Settlers were also unionist and were occasionally massacred in Texas during this period)

#Polish Resurrectionist priests arrived from Europe

#A sisterhood of Polish teaching nuns was established . With carts to haul them inland scarce, the immigrants walked to their land grants near San Antonio, Texas Antonio and the town was settled on Christmas Eve, 1854. It is the oldest Poles settlement in the United States. A Franciscan missionary, Father Leopold Moczygemba, started recruiting Upper Silesia Silesians in 1852, when Silesia was part of the Kingdom of Prussia.
