- Venue Description:
For over 90 years, Greek Orthodox Cathedral has been a spiritual haven for the local Greek community. The church's original goal was to simply offer immigrants a place to perpetuate religion, but today it is a center of cultural activity. The large golden dome sitting atop the church makes this one of the most recognizable buildings in the city. The interior features a large icon of the "Christ Almighty" and 14 icons of the "Great Feasts of Christ." Tours are available between 1pm and 5pm daily, or by appointment.
