What a surprise!!! Scared Heart is a Catholic Cathedral that was destined for destruction when it's was saved to become an events venue! It is stunningly beautiful and spacious . Attended the ceremony, then had cocktails in the lovely side garden and then back inside for dinner and dancing. Lots if fun. Easy to find and lots of parking.

Great, beautiful building, formerly a Catholic Church. We were there for the best of Augusta for wine and food, good music and a great crowd. We also go to their Spring Garden preview party which is very well attended and planned in April. Lots of great southern food, music, vendors, garden displays.

The perfect place for a wedding! This unique church is booked by brides far from the Augusta area. Although not in the best location in Augusta, this cultural center is very large and has amazing acoustics. A soloist can bring chills to your arms in this place. It's awesome and very memorable.

This building was formerly a church and still retains beautiful architectural features such as intricate brickwork and stained glass. There is no cost and a donation is voluntary.

We stopped by with the hope of seeing the inside of this incredible building. It was closed for a private event, but the people setting up were nice enough to let us look around for a few minutes. The architecture, and intricacy of the building are breathtaking. The icons are very interesting and the grounds are very well maintained. It... More

If you enjoy architecture, then this is the place for you :) It used to be a Catholic church, but it now houses a small art gallery downstairs, along with a gift shop.
