After the 1906 earthquake and fire destroyed their mansion, the Crocker family donated their property to the Episcopal Diocese of California. In 1927, construction began on Grace Cathedral. The Depression delayed the work and the cathedral was not consecrated until 1964. The French Gothic-style church features a replica of Lorenzo Ghiberti’s “Gates of Paradise” doors, stained-glass windows and an Aeolian-Skinner organ with 7,466 pipes. For an extraordinary experience, listen to its liturgical music — Evensong or Sunday Eucharist — sung by the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys.
