History

Cupid's Haven is housed in what was originally St. Augustine's Church. Completed in 1910-1911, the existing building was built to replace the original 18th century church that was destroyed by fire. As time passed, the congregation of St. Augustine's combined with other parishes to build a new church and St. Augustine's was put up for sale. Through much planning and hard work, the building has been renovated into the masterpiece it is today. For more of the history of St. Augustine's Church, click here.
