Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, a Victorian Gothic design, is home to the oldest and largest Roman Catholic Church in the southeast. Baldwin and Price designed the original building in the 1870s and the Cathedral was built in 1873. The building was almost destroyed by fire in 1898 and only the two spires survived the fire. The current structure was rebuilt in 1900 and still stands today. The beautiful and impressive stained glass windows were made in Austria and were installed around 1900.
