Unfinished Cathedral, St. George

3.6
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in St. George
Explore Unfinished Cathedral a historic landmark of the town, only 15 minutes from the center of St. George. Many stories exist as to why the cathedral was never completed. The construction began in 1874, and was supposed to feature a Gothic fa├žade. With no roof constructed, lush green grass grows where the church aisles should be and the support pillars have crumbled and are covered in mould. Despite the church's incomplete structure, it has been frequently used for wedding ceremonies in the past.

  • Interesting and pretty building to visit, but you can no longer walk inside it for safety reasons.
  • Beautiful old church but you can no longer walk inside for safety reasons.
  • There are gates up and you cannot walk inside the building, but it is still cool to look at.
  • Building is currently closed.. You can't actually walk in the church. You can only walk around the outside of it. Still Beautiful to see. Would have like more plaques or signs with more information to read.
  • A sight to see how we build our local lime stone building from start in the Seventeen Hundreds .
