: St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, built between 1894 and 1915, was the result of planning by the Most Reverend Camillus Paul Maes, third Bishop of the Diocese of Covington. Designed by artist and architect Leon Coquard, construction was funded by "subscriptions" from many private donors. Building was completed in phases, as funding allowed, and even when stopped in 1915, was incomplete. One of only 35 minor basilicas in the United States, the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption was awarded that distinction on December 8, 1953. View on Ohio Memory.
