"In 1926, the people and pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Bowmansville, NY decided to construct two shrines – one devoted to the Immaculate Conception and one to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The small parish, still burdened with the debt of its original building program, did not have the money to hire professional designers, stonecutters, or masons. Fortunately, the pastor, Father Edward L. Ott, was a skilled designer and builder. Father Ott and the parishioners did virtually all the construction work. The shrines have survived in good condition for over 80 years, a testimony to their skill and craftsmanship."
There is considerably more to the history available at the website.
