About this Exploration:

If you depart Catharine and head east on Catharine Road, you can take a side trip to drive by the ghost town of Emmeram and see the ruins of the Sacred Heart Church.

The church was built from 1899 to 1901 with the first Mass on Christmas day 1901.  Due to declining population at the parish, it was closed on August 6, 1967. 

On October 12, 1998, the church was destroyed by fire.  The cause of the fire was suspicious and only the limestone walls remained. 

Directions to Emmeram:  From Catharine drive 1 1/2 miles east to Codell Road.  Go north two miles to Emmeram Road and turn right to go east 3 miles to the intersection of Emmeram Road and 350th Ave.  The remains of the church are on the north side of the road.
