Built in 1874 this building of worship is exquisite. Self guided tours open daily. Check Cathrdral of St. John the Baptist website for current information. Really a cool place to think of someone and say a personal prayer.

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.
