St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in 1853, Deacon J. W. Dunn from Lockhart held the first Episcopal services in San Marcos. Several years passed before the Reverend Wallace Carnahan began holding regular Episcopal services in the Presbyterian Church.
According to St. Mark’s website, in 1999, the parish voted to start looking for a new location as they were running out of room. A twenty acre tract was purchased from the San Marcos Baptist Academy and on February 14, 2010, the beautiful new church was dedicated at 3039 Ranch Road 12.
Cottage Kitchen began more than 40 years ago inside the Charles S. Cock home, a historic stone house that is now listed in the National Register. Charles S. Cock was a pioneer and a former mayor of San Marcos. For more information please call 512-392-4295.

The Heritage Association of San Marcos is a nonprofit organization chartered in 1975 to support the preservation of buildings, historical sites and archives as well as to perpetuate traditions that beautify and enrich the community life of this city.
The Association grew out of the San Marcos Bicentennial Commission, which was formed in 1972 to plan and coordinate the city’s celebration of the nation’s Bicentennial in 1976.
Since its founding, the Heritage Association has been responsible for many beloved community traditions, including the traditional Friday luncheons at the Cottage Kitchen.
