Notes St. Joseph's Cathedral is the oldest cathedral west of the Allegheney Mountains. It was erected in 1816 and dedicated in 1819 by Rev. Joseph Flaget as its first Bishop. It has rare collection of famous paintings, donated by Louis Phillipe, who, as the Duke of Orleans, visited Bardstown in 1897. These masterpieces are works of Old World Masters and now hang on the walls of the cathedral.
