The Sacred Heart Cultural Center is a former Catholic Church built in 1897 and located in Augusta’s downtown. Registered on the National Register of Historic Places, the striking building features twin spires, fifteen styles of brickwork, graceful arches, ninety-four magnificent stained glass windows, a barreled vaulted ceiling, and finely carved marble altars. The last mass in Sacred Heart was held in 1971, and, after extensive renovation, it was reopened in 1987 as a cultural center.
The building serves as a wonderful venue for cultural and social events – art exhibitions, theatrical production, a popular Garden Festival, and choral concerts. Its facilities can be rented for all kinds of private and public events, and it is used continually throughout the year for celebrations and civic functions. The Sacred Heart School building and the old Rectory building house offices of several local arts groups and non-profit organizations such as the Augusta Ballet, the Greater Augusta Arts Council, Choral Society, Children’s Chorale, and the Symphony Orchestra Augusta.
