St James Cathedral



St James Old Cathedral, an Anglican church, is the oldest church in Melbourne, Australia, and one of only three buildings in the central city which predate the Gold Rush of 1851. The church's foundation stone was laid on 9 November 1839 by Charles La Trobe, the Superintendent of the Port Phillip District (now Victoria), in what was then still part of New South Wales. Melbourne was then only four years old, and the church was one of the first substantial brick buildings to be built in the town. The church was designed by the town surveyor Robert Russell (after whom Russell St is named) and built by George Beaver. One of the founders of Melbourne, John Batman, was among the subscribers who paid for the church's construction. It was opened in 1842 and completed in 1847
