This is an old Catholic church that has been saved by the community and repurposed as a cultural center. The stained glass have been restored and there are cases filled with personal memorabilia belonging to the former parishioners. Great little gift shop with southern charm and gifts including pickled asparagus and okra. We also bought a souvenir Christmas ornament for... More

Gorgeous venue for any event---wedding, parties, fund raisers, etc...Can you believe at one time, they were going to tear this down? So glad they didn't.

This is a good place to go with kids on a summer afternoon because it is free and there is air conditioning! 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.
