Sacred Heart RC Church - Main Street, Georgetown, BG

This church on Main Street was built in 1861 to serve a mainly Portuguese congregation in the hopes that the Portuguese would be encouraged to maintain their customs, traditions, and language. The presbytery next door was converted to a grammar school, marking the beginning of the Sacred Heart Primary School. This building was destroyed by fire on Christmas Day 2004. And Guyana once again lost one of its eminent landmarks of unique architectural distinction.
