    Art Exhibit featuring local artist: Rick Kime (Sponsored by Members Trust Federal Credit Union)

    The 2019 “Sundown on the Square” featured artist is Rick Kime, who has lived in Stephenville since 1989. Rick was born and raised in San Antonio, the son of a professional artist who works in oils.  Rick took a few lessons from his father in the 1970s before taking up watercolors as his medium.  Rick says, “I just liked the feel and spread of watercolors. People in the know always told me to paint what you enjoy, so I mostly paint wildlife, wildflowers and Texas landscapes. I spend a lot of time in the woods, hunting and fishing so I end up with ideas from these experiences.” 


    Rick’s profession has mostly been in construction and remodeling. About five years ago, he obtained a professional home inspection license.  Although he took home study courses in commercial art, Rick never worked in that industry.


    Rick says he LOVES Stephenville, the SHS and TSU sports teams and the wonderful people.  He and his wife, Karen, plan to make Stephenville their home for as long as possible.

    About Sundown on the Square 2018


    The Chapel on the Bosque was moved to the Stephenville Historical House Museum in 1976 as a community-wide bicentennial project. It was rededicated on July 4, 1976, at the museum. Originally the First Presbyterian Church, was located at Mason and Barton Streets in Stephenville. The Gothic-style church was built in 1899 with the cornerstone laid on December 10, 1899. The building was designed by W.J. Wilson, who oversaw the construction. Mr. Wilson had directed the construction of the original John Tarleton College building as well as many residences in Stephenville. Two of the carpenters who worked on the church were Hilliard B. Smith and Daniel Fielding Smith.

    The opening church service was held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 10, 1900. The Rev. John William Evards presided over the church as the first pastor. His sermon was titled “The Grandeur of the House of the Lord,” from Isaiah 66:1-2. The original pews are still in usein the chapel. The original pulpit is located there, as well. In thepastor’s study is the bookcase donated by J. Collin George to thefirst public library in Stephenville. New stained-glass windows were installed several years ago. Repainting and reroofing have been done in the last several years; however, no other major renovations have been made since the chapel was moved to the museum. There are several interior and exterior repairs that need to be made within the next two years. The current estimated cost is $70,000.00.



    The current estimated cost is $70,000.00

    • Repair or replacement of the air conditioning/ heating unit and duct work

    • Repair the ceiling fans

    • Repair the steeple spire

    • Repair the bead board ceiling in the study and foyer where moisture has entered
