St. John the Baptist Cathedral

A BRIEF HISTORY:
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist was completed in late 1899 and remains one of the largest church buildings in the South. It is a Catholic cathedral in Savannah, Georgia, located at 222 East Harris Street.Spires of St. John the Baptist Cathedral

"Between 1959 and 1963, the building went through a major renovation. The building was upgraded to include modern heating, cooling, lighting, a new plaza, a new pulpit, and a new altar rail. From 1984-1985, the building was again renovated by replacing the old, crumbling wooden foundation of the building with a reinforced concrete one. From September 1998-November 2000, the cathedral's slate roof was replaced, 50 stained glass windows were releaded, and the interior was restored. " (Wikipedia.com)
