Originally constructed in 1849, St Paul's is not only one of Buffalo's most beautiful churches; it's one of the oldest buildings in the whole city. Designed by Richard Upjohn in 1848, construction was completed in 1870. After a devastating fire in 1888, it was rebuilt with some embellishments designed by Robert Wilson Gibson. The cathedral is on the National Register of Historic Places. While well maintained, nature has taken its toll on specific areas of the building and a number of exterior restorations were needed. Flynn Battaglia Architects work focused on the two original exterior staircases, finials and pinnacles, replacing and repairing windows, restoring masonry and a complete roof replacement.
