Most People Don’t Know There’s A Little Notre Dame Cathedral In Kentucky

Paris may be far from Kentucky, but one of its most iconic buildings has a replica right here in Kentucky. In Covington, you’ll find the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, which may look oddly familiar. This stunning Basilica stands out, situated on an unassuming Covington street, although you can spot it from the nearby highway. It may be smaller than its counterpart, but Kentucky is lucky to claim it as its own.
