Open House Chicago Holy Name Cathedral - Gold Coast
Rebuilt out of the ashes of the 1871 Chicago Great Fire (and again in 2009), Holy Name Cathedral is one of the city's most famous and inspired buildings. Home to the Chicago Catholic Archdiocese, the imposing Gothic edifice in the Gold Coast has a spire arching 210 feet and seats more than 1,500 attendees. Designed and completed by architect Patrick Charles Keely in 1875, it's part of the National Register of Historic Places. Location: 735 N. State St.
