Sacred Heart Church ,
Downtown Tampa Map
Groundbreaking for the Sacred Heart Church happened in 1898 and construction was completed in 1905. This makes this downtown Tampa landmark one of the oldest existing churches in Tampa and the oldest Catholic in the City. The church’s architect, Nicholas Clayton, designed a lot of Catholic churches throughout the south as well as many of the secular buildings in Galveston, Texas. For Sacred Heart, he had its 70 stained glass windows custom made in Munich, Germany.
