Can you name the four Kerrville churches in this photo?

My friend James Partain shared this image with me some time ago, and I've been working on it with Photoshop since then.  The original has some issues -- and I'm trying to correct them.  So far I haven't been too successful.
The photo was taken from atop the Tivy Hotel (back when that building faced Main Street), so it's taken from Tivy and Main Streets, looking up Main toward the courthouse, roughly headed northwest.
I see tfour churches in the photo -- plus the old courthouse.  I'm sure you can see additional things.
Can you name the four churches?

View of Kerrville from Tivy House, I'm guessing around 1900.

  1. Here is a guess: Catholic church, Presbyterian Church, Episcopal Church and Methodist Church.

  2. I can't name the churches, but I certainly love the house in the foreground, the one with the windmill.

    I have a two story, and yet I am too feeble to climb the stairs.

    Oh, house I would love to have a new house built to look just like the one in the photo.

  3. In my comment above (third sentence), I meant to say, "Oh, how" not "Oh, house."
