  Sacred Heart Church
by H-TownJourneyman

Sacred Heart Church is a absolutely beautiful structure located near the Strand district on Broadway. The church's original building was opened in 1892, and was destroyed in the 1900 Galveston Hurricane that ravaged the city and killed thousands of people. The current building was completed in 1904, and partially rebuilt again after another hurricane in 1915. The church stands out among the many other Victorian style structures nearby, with it's lovely white color, and it's Moorish & Byzantine influences in design. Palm trees surround the perimeter of it, enhancing the wonderful architecture of the structure.
