Long Description:
TRINITY EPISCOPAL CHURCH, Church St., an adaptation in English Gothic, is of stucco-covered brick, weathered to a pinkish hue. A characteristic tall steeple, silhoutted against the sky, towers above ornamental buttresses and battlemented parapet. The deeply recessed front entrance is richly molded and niched. Paths bordered with boxwood lead beneath magnolia trees to an old cemetery in the rear.
