AAA Editor Notes
Saint Cecilia Cathedral is between Webster and Burt sts. at 701 N. 40th St. The Spanish Renaissance-style cathedral contains a white Carrara marble altar from Pietrasanta, Italy; a hand-carved mahogany pulpit; and the Our Lady of Nebraska Chapel with stained-glass windows from a 16th-century cathedral in Pamplona, Spain. The cornerstone was put into place in 1907.
The adjacent Cathedral Cultural Center has a museum and art gallery. The museum has exhibits about the history of the Omaha archdiocese; about Thomas Rogers Kimball, the architect who designed the cathedral; and about Omaha as a western frontier. The art gallery has changing exhibits by local artists.
