Description

Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is the second oldest structure in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Designed by local architect William H. Parkins, the cornerstone was laid September 1, 1869 by poet Abram Joseph Ryan. It was completed and dedicated in 1873 and is still in use. It replaced a frame structure on the same site that was famously saved from the burning of the city in 1864.
