Our Lady Queen of Peace

A plaque next to this Alpine grotto reads, "This grotto is dedicated to OUR LADY QUEEN OF PEACE by the parishoners of this church as a token of their devotion and as a hopeful prayer for the conversion of Russia, October 16, 1949.
The grotto appears to be made with the same native stone you find all over Alpine, including on the campus of Sul Ross State University.
To find the grotto, cross the railroad tracks by the train station and head up the hill. It is next to the Queen of Peace church, which overlooks the city.
