St. John the Evangelist Cathedral
St. John the Evangelist Cathedral Review
This cathedral, completed in 1916 (construction began in 1912), is a Dutch Romanesque structure with Byzantine touches. Union troops camped on the grounds during the Civil War. In the cemetery behind the church are aboveground tombs that date back to 1820; interred here are town founder Jean Mouton, Civil War hero General Alfred Mouton, General Alfred Gardiner, and Cidalese Arceneaux. Next to the cathedral is a nearly 500-year-old St. John Oak, one of the charter members of the silent but leafy Louisiana Live Oak Society. Call two weeks in advance to schedule a tour.
