St. Philip’s Episcopal Church was established in 1846 with five communicants. By 1875, they were the largest Episcopal parish in Georgia and, in 1904, became the Cathedral of the Diocese of Georgia. In 1933, St. Philip’s Cathedral moved to its present location; the “little grey church” was built atop the hill at Andrews Drive and Peachtree. Mikell Chapel was completed in 1947, followed by the parish hall in 1955. The grand Cathedral replaced the “little grey church” in 1962.
