MIAMI, Ok. — It is thought to be the oldest structure in Miami.
But time, mother nature, all of the elements really – have taken their toll over the years. So that meant the original Sacred Heart Catholic Church on the corner of West Central and East Street had to come down.
A demolition project has been ongoing since last Sunday. The church was built on April 22nd, 1900.
At the time, it was the Sacred Heart of Jesus – and had a total of 10 families on its membership roll.
