The Cathedral was built between the years 1906 and 1915 for a total budget of $1 million. It was designed by architect Emmanuel Louis Masqueray in the Beaux-Arts style. The cathedral tops out at 306 feet. It's the third largest Catholic church and the sixth largest church overall in the United States.

The granite for the walls was quarried in St Cloud. The beautiful interior dome soars 187 feet above the floor and is covered in gold leaf. The interior was finally completed in 1941 even though the building has been in use since 1915. The copper domes were restored in 2002.
