New Orleans, Louisana

Tall and silent, St. Louis Cathedral stands as it has for many years, its cultivated lawn and wandering walking paths a favorite for tourists and locals alike. Stately it rises up, its tall spires offering a symbol of strength and resolution; of age and beauty. Here it provides the perfect backdrop for the large statue and lovely park setting of Jackson Square before it. The cathedral was consecrated in 1794 and has been said to tbe the oldest continuously active cathedral in the country. Here you can see the cathedral looming behind the statue of Andrew Jackson, on horseback, as depicted by Clark Mills. It is one of the city's most well known statues in a city with many intriguing landmarks.
