St. Augustine’s Cultural Center
St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, located in Austin, Nevada, is Nevada’s oldest Catholic church building (1866) and also one of its finest.
The church is located on a prominent hill in Austin’s narrow canyon. Its stately appearance is compelling and dominates the town with a strong historic aura. The wood and tin clad spire rises seventy five feet making the structure seem very tall with its narrow Gothic Revival style. Built into the hillside on solid granite, both the bricks and granite used in construction were from the old Austin quarry and brickyard that flourished in the 1800’s.
