Building Name

Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine

Description

The Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine was built between 1793-1797. It was the third sanctuary for the church as previous structures had burned. The coquina classical style cathedral burned again in 1887 but was salvageable as the facade and walls remained standing. Four bells were placed at the Cathedral ; one of which is still thought to be the oldest bell in the United States to this day because it is thought to have been salvaged from a previous church. This is on the National Register of Historic Places (#70000844).
