We were able to roam the old sanctuary and look at the stained glass windows, the old confessionals, and the church items they have on display from when it was a sanctified Catholic Church in Augusta (there is...

This is one of those iconic places in downtown Augusta. When I was in humanities class at Augusta College/Augusta State University/(and now whatever its called), my professor had us go to Sacred Heart to identify some of the types of structures used in its construction. This helped me appreciate the beauty that lies within this building. Take your time when... More

This beautiful location is a church converted into a hall for events, home of Greater Augusta Arts Council and Symphony of Augusta. It also houses a great gift store that contains items by local artisans and writers. The beauty of the of this former place of worship is a must see if you plan a visit to Augusta.

An editor for a national golf publication described in his editorial space described the Sacred Heart venue as a falling down church. How wrong and arrogant. This structure restored by Peter Knox ,before the wrecking ball , restored to grandeur built by Irish artisans in the 1800's. Any function you can conceive of can be accommodated by professional staff and... More

Sacred Heart was once a Catholic church, built in 1883. The exterior brickwork is unmatched in Augusta. The interior has been brought back to its beauty of years gone by. The stained glass windows, interior columns, and other decorations make this a must-see for sight-seers in Augusta.

Beautiful setting for a wedding. The architecture is amazing in this old church. Lots of room in the building itself and in the garden area. Also, it's not far from Augusta's downtown area with lots of hotels.

We had my daughter's wedding here 7 years ago. The beautiful architecture and stained glass windows were so beautiful that we kept decorating down to a minimum of just vases of roses and candles. If you come to town ask them for a tour.
