Sacred Heart Catholic Church replicates an earlier church on its site that burned in 1915. The design reflects the congregation’s memories of Byzantine architectural influences in their native southeastern Poland. Two tall symmetrical towers flanking a curved gable facade are capped with small domes on open cupolas. The interior groin vaults are carried on slender columns and the spacious interior is painted white and blue.
