The Cathedral of Saint Joseph stands tall above the Sioux Falls skyline. This Romanesque and French Renaissance structure was built from 1915-1918 and dedicated May 7, 1919. The first mass was held in the unfinished church on December 8, 1918. Over the years, the historic landmark has become a corner stone of the Cathedral Historic District and through renovations has created an engagment of beautification to the neighborhood.
A multi-million dollar, three-year renovation, was completed in July 2011 and transformed the cathedral back to its original grandeur and charm. The renovation included restoring much of the original paintings, mouldings and structure.
