The Baltimore Cathedral was the first metropolitan Roman Catholic cathedral built in the United States, and the first major religious structure built here after the adoption of the Constitution.
As the seat of the once persecuted Catholic Church east of the Mississippi River, it came to symbolize a new era of American religious freedom.
It is considered a masterpiece of Benjamin Henry Latrobe, one of the new nation's first outstanding architects.
Architectural historians have called it the most architecturally advanced American building of its time, the most beautiful church in North America, one of the great buildings of the West, and one of the finest examples of Neo-Classical architecture in the world.
The renovation architects were recognized with a 2009 Honor Award from the National Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
