History of the Parador 

Built in 1928, The Parador stands as a testament to the architectural artistry of a distant era. Marrying Mediterranean style with Byzantine detail, this magnificent building is designated as a Texas historical landmark.

The craftsmanship in creating this stunning five-sided structure is evident throughout. Intimate spaces evoking a splendor of yesteryear meet with the grandeur of stately lounges, echoing a place in time and a beauty that is timeless. The Third Church of Christ Scientist served the congregation that had been organized as an offshoot of the growing First Church of Christ Scientist. The structure was designed by J. Rodney Tabor of the Jonas & Tabor Architectural Firm.
