Sacred Heart Augusta GA

Richmond County, GA is best known as Augusta, GA, the home of the Masters Golf Tournament. Augusta is centrally located between several cities in the eastern section of the state. From Augusta, you can be in Atlanta via I-20 in a little over 2 hours (150 miles), Columbia, SC via I-20 in a little over an hour (75 miles), Savannah, GA in about 2.5 hours (140 mile), Charleston, SC in about 3 hours (160 miles), and Asheville, NC in about 3 hours (180 miles).

Augusta is rich in history, the city served as the state capital of Georgia from 1785-1795. The city boasts of many historically significant properties "such as the Cotton Exchange, established in 1872; the boyhood home of Woodrow Wilson (28th president of the United States); Ezekiel Harris House (1797); George Walton home (signer of the Declaration of Independence) and Springfield Baptist Church, the oldest African American church in America." 1a   Augusta was the second largest inland cotton market in the world during the cotton boom, this was made possible by the completion of the Augusta Canal in 1847. The National Register of Historic Places lists thirteen Augusta districts, along with several cemeteries, and monuments. Before there were subdivisions, Augusta had neighborhoods, some with some pretty peculiar nicknames--Goat Hollow, Lick Skillet, Frog Hollow, and Cow Town, but the ones still know today are The Hill and Harrisburg.

Today, the area is strongly tied to its medical and military roots. The area of is made up of six hospitals, medical and dental schools, and Fort Gordon. 

The medical footprint includes University Hospital, Doctors Hospital, Children's Hospital of Georgia, Georgia Regents Health Medical Center, Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, Trinity Hospital, and Eisenhower Army Medical Center--along with Georgia Regents University Augusta Medical College of Georgia, Georgia Regents University Augusta College of Dental MedicineFort Gordon, a United States Army installation, is also home to the 35th Signal Brigade, 513th Military Intelligence Brigade and the Regional Security Operations Center employs approximately 30,000 military and civilian personnel.

The Augusta area is made up of many established neighborhoods as well as many new neighborhoods. The county offers a wide range of cultural opportunities as well as having close access to neighboring towns and communities that host water activities at Strom Thurmond Lake and family activities of renting kayaks and bicycles at Savannah Rapids Pavilion. A visit to Augusta is not complete unless you visit the Riverwalk, here you can walk in the park on the banks of the Savannah River. On your walk, you will pass the new The Augusta Convention Center with its 100,000 square feet of meeting space that is connected to the Augusta Marriott.  You can take advantage of the modern re-use of the Augusta Canal, by taking a boat tour or walking, running, or riding your bike on the towpath of the canal.

Some of conveniently located neighborhoods that are close to the downtown medical district and I-20 are Conifer Place, Aumond Place, Montclair, Forest Hills, Summerville, and Waverly.
