Galveston’s Sacred Heart Catholic Church was built in 1903-1904

The original Sacred Heart Church was built in 1892, however it was destroyed in the hurricane of 1900.  During the years 1903 to 1904 the current edifice was built.

Beautiful architecture designed by Nicholas J. Clayton, noted Galveston Architect

The dome was damaged in the hurricane of 1915. Clayton was called on to redesign the dome.
