Sacred Heart Public School is a former school facility in Sacred Heart, Minnesota, United States. The original building was constructed in 1901 and expanded in 1929, 1953, 1964, and 1974. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014 for having local significance in education, entertainment/recreation, and social history. Its construction history reflects the 20th-century growth and educational expansion of small-town public schools, while its 1929 auditorium/gymnasium also served as Sacred Heart's primary venue for public functions. The school closed in 2009, though the building is still used for local events.[2]
