I found these photos in the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation archives recently. They show the 1955 dedication ceremony for Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Mayfield Park. I don't have the exact date, but it appears to be summer time. Click here to view a short article about the founding of the church in the lower-right corner of this newspaper page.
Since Imperial lent its support, President W. H. Louviere, Sr. and other company dignitaries participated in the ceremonies. The last picture shows Mr. Louviere addressing the congregation.
