Sacred Heart Catholic Church, built by Jesuit priests, opened its doors for worship Dec. 2, 1900. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it is an architectural masterpiece. The building features towering twin spires, graceful arches, 15 distinctive styles of brickwork, 94 stained-glass windows, a barreled vaulted ceiling and intricately carved Italian marble altars.

This important historic landmark serves as a unique venue for social and cultural events. Weddings, concerts, silent movies with theater organist, and an annual garden festival fill the center with beauty and energy. Tours, both guided and self-led, take place daily. The gift shop offers local artisans a unique opportunity to exhibit and sell their works. A collection of souvenirs and regional books can be perused while enjoying the exhibits in the Art Hall downstairs in the main structure.

Weekends are open by appointment. Guided tours are available.
