The cornerstone for St. Mary's Cathedral was laid in 1847, the same year that the Catholic Diocese of Galveston - which included all of Texas - was established.
Father J.M. Odin, the first Bishop of Galveston, traveled to Europe and secured 500,000 bricks in Antwerp for the building's construction, also encouraging laborers from England, Ireland and Germany to come to Texas to build the edifice.
Architect Nicholas Clayton designed additions in 1876 and 1882.
The Gothic Revival style church is built of brick covered with stucco scored to look like stone.
Spires and stained glass windows are prominent.
