Long Description:
The Sacred Heart Mission, established in 1877, soon became an important center of Catholicism in Oklahoma. Many of the original buildings were destroyed by a fire in 1901 and the educational components of the mission eventually became St. Gregory's in Shawnee. The Gothic Revival church was constructed in 1914. The cemetery was originally in two sections, one for the Sisters of Mercy and one for the Abbey. This church and cemetery are all that remain of Sacred Heart, now considered a ghost town.
Name of church or churchyard: Sacred Heart

Approximate Size: Large (100+)
