St Fidelis Church ~ Victoria, Kansas Dubbed The Cathedral of the Plains by William Jennings Bryan in 1912, this massive limestone church is one of Kansas' most familiar and beloved landmarks. It was built by and for the hardy Volga Germans who settled the Victoria area. Voted one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas. Less than a five minute drive from Interstate 70 at Victoria, Kansas, a few miles east of Hays. A terrific little side trip from the long drive across the plains of western Kansas.
