The land of La Lomita, sitting on two Spanish porciones almost midway between Brownsville and Roma, was acquired by Rene Guyard, a devout Catholic, before 1849. Guyard built a ranch here, naming it ‘La Lomita’ for the little hill. Guyard requested that the Oblates build a chapel on his ranch, to minister to the families living on La Lomita lands.

acquired. ok.
