Old Cathedral Renovation Underway

After major fundraising efforts, restoration has begun on Phase 1 of the Old Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis which includes stone restoration and window replacement.  Working with Musick Construction Co., Mackey Mitchell’s design for interior upgrades includes updated lighting, restoration of wooden floors, removal of  finishes from a 1960′s renovation, and repair of the mosaic tile floor around the altar. The Old Cathedral houses a substantial collection of art and artifacts which have historical significance not only for the Archdiocese, but also for the City of St. Louis. The restoration project potentially includes the rebirth of a museum, which will provide an additional attraction on the Arch grounds.
