Sacred Heart Church, (now cultural center) Augusta:
exterior of Sacred Heart, Augusta:
exterior of Sacred Heart in Galveston after a hurricane destroyed it in the early 20th century. It certainly looks like Augusta's Sacred Heart!
Bishop Lessard considered tearing down Augusta's Sacred Heart once it was closed in 1970. The outcry from everyone in Augusta, not just Catholics, was so loud, he simply sold it. The Knox Foundation, run by a Methodist family, purchased it, restored it and it is now a cultural center. But this would have been Augusta's Sacred Heart fate not by a hurricane but by a wrecking ball!
