St. John the Baptist

View of St. John the Baptist

The first Cathedral at this location was built in 1854 and promptly burned in a great fire of 1861. Construction on the new building began in 1890 with the doors opening in 1907. By Charleston standards this is the ‘new kid on the block’.

I have not been shooting in town for a while (or anywhere) so I tried to make up for lost time. The Cathedral doors are always open making it perfect start of the day.

Impressive isn’t it LOL.

    1. My experience with large churches was limited to St. Patrick’s. I’m from NYC. I always wanted to see Norte Dame, when I did I was hooked. Charleston is perfect for me. This church is the newest 😂. I went from here and visited two others probably 100 years older. Good day of shooting.
