Grace Cathedral

December 22, 2009
A block away from The Mark Hopkins Hotel sits Grace Cathedral.

The French Gothic architecture wowed Nibs. First built in 1849 during California's Gold Rush, the structure wasn't completed till 1964.

There are many places to contemplate at this Episcopal cathedral, like by this lovely fountain.

Teddy snuck inside for a quick looky-loo. No service at the time. Just a lot of quiet. And tons of gorgeous stained glass to look at.

Grace Cathedral has some links to Hollywood: this is where part of Alfred Hitchcock's Family Plot was filmed in 1975 and is also where Courteney Cox married David Arquette in 1999.
