North Noble St. and later in a house on Centre St. (now Armitage) near Racine.
1901: Father John Kochurov (later St. John of Chicago) and the parish selected renowned American architect, Louis H. Sullivan. Archival references show that a small wooden church in Siberia along the Trans-Siberian Railroad, serves as inspiration.
Church is consecrated by St. Tikhon of Moscow.
Holy Trinity becomes the Cathedral of the new bishop of Chicago, Theophilus.
Holy Trinity Cathedral is listed on the
National Register of Historic Places.
Holy Trinity Cathedral is designated
an official City of Chicago Landmark.
