On May 3, 1821, Bishop John England purchased the present property in Charleston and built a temporary chapel for the congregation.
Construction of the first cathedral at the present site was started on July 30, 1850. The cathedral was consecrated on April 6, 1854. On December 11, 1861, what started as a factory fire destroyed much of Charleston including the cathedral.
Fund-raising for a new cathedral continued for 45 years, and construction of the present Cathedral began in January 1890.
