SACRED HEARTS CHURCH RESTORATION
Sun Prairie, WI
Candles started the fire that engulfed the 100+ year old side altar and facade that housed the statue of Mary. The entire upper facade of the Marion altar had to be replaced. You can view photos of the damage here - "Sacred Hearts Fire Damage Photos". All of the new pieces were hand carved using the remaining pieces of the facade and the sister altar (on the other side of the church) as a guide. Hundreds of photographs and measurements were taken to ensure that the new facade would be identical to the one it was replacing..
