Christ Church Cathedral, Nashville

Christ Church Cathedral, Nashville

Designed by Francis Hatch Kimbal from New York City in the 1890s, Christ Church Cathedral is Victorian Gothic, an English architectural style that used to express the strength and solidity of the Industrial Revolution. The exterior is modeled after European cathedrals with wide stone steps leading to heavy oak doors that open into tiled vestibules or "porches". The church has a broad nave, with slightly pointed barrel arches supported by sturdy polished granite columns on heavy bases.

The Cathedral offers tours providing information regarding the history of Christ Church, the architecture and appointments of the Nave (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), and worship at the Cathedral. Tour guides are available for drop-in tours on Fridays between 12:30pm and 2:30pm, Saturday mornings from 10:30am until noon, and Sundays after the 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. liturgies (summer tours after the 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. liturgies).

Why You Should Visit:
The magnificent windows, the wooden arched ceiling, the gorgeous altar, and the organ with many displayed pipes all make for a truly breathtaking interior.
