First cathedral in the United States

The Baltimore Cathedral, also known as the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and the Baltimore Basilica, is known for being the First Cathedral in the United States. The Basilica was constructed (1806–1821) to a design of Benjamin Henry Latrobe — America's first professionally trained architect and Thomas Jefferson's Architect of the U.S. Capitol; under the guidance of America's first Bishop, John Carroll. The Basilica was later consecrated on May 31, 1821 by the third Archbishop of Baltimore, Ambrose Maréchal. Pope Pius XI raised the Cathedral to the rank of a Minor Basilica in 1937. In 1969, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and further, in 1971, it was declared a National Historic Landmark. In 1993, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops designated the Basilica a National Shrine.
