French Catholic immigrants fleeing Haiti's unrest established the first Catholic Church in Savannah in 1799. It also became the main church for free African Americans from Haiti in the early 19th century.
A glorious Savannah attraction to behold, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is an architectural masterpiece. In the French-Gothic style, pointed arches and magnificent details make a breathtaking backdrop to the gorgeous Savannah skyline.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966, visitors can take a self-guided tour of the cathedral, enjoying the amazing Twin Spires and picturesque exterior as well as the Italian marble, Austrian stained glass and opulent Persian rugs of the interior. On any day of the year, a stop at the Cathedral of St. John is a fantastic experience.
Casper, our black cat mascot, is puurrfectly and patiently waiting for visitors on the steps of the Cathedral. He is the sign of an authentic Cat's Meow!
