Cathedral of St. John



The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist is the Mother Church of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. It sits next to Cathedral Square Park downtown. Construction was begun in 1847, and completed in 1852. Its exterior is primarily made of "Cream City" brick, a feature found in many local buildings. The cathedral is open for self-guided tours. I have never been inside myself, but I'm looking forward to seeing it soon!
