Near here in 1820 the first Catholic Church in Tennessee was built by Irish Catholic workers then building a bridge over Cumberland River. In 1830 a brick structure known as Holy Rosary Cathedral succeeded the frame building. Here Bishop R. P. Miles, first Bishop of Tennessee was installed Oct. 15, 1838. When St. Mary's Cathedral was built in 1847, Holy Rosary Church became St. John's Hospital & Orphanage. The site was sold to the state in 1857.
