Long Description:
From the Trinity Episcopal Church web site (visit link) :
"Trinity Episcopal Church began as an Episcopal mission in 1862. The first building was completed in late 1864. The Grant County Witness reported on October 1, 1863, that the cost to build the church was “some $15,000.” The church is a brick gothic revival. Among its greatest treasures are Belgian stained glass windows, which have been restored recently, and an organ built by famed organ builder Henry Erban. A columbarium was added inside the church building in early 1987. The Cunningham Center serves as the center for parish activities and features a newly remodeled kitchen. The parish house contains space for Christian Education as well as the Rector’s office and workroom. The rectory, purchased in 1999, completes Trinity’s ownership of the entire block."
Year of construction: 1864
