The Trinity Church was built in 1726 according to the designs of London churches that were designed by the famous British architect, Sir Christopher Wren. It is another National Historic Landmark and was visited by many dignitaries and famous people in its history.
Unfortunately, Trinity Church is only open a few hours a day and I did not get to see its beautiful and simple interior with its three-tiered wineglass pulpit. The pulpit is the only one in existence in the United States. Since I couldn''t go inside this time around, I walked around the cemetary outside the church and took photos of the gravestones that date from 1726 and the exteriors. I enjoyed a few minutes of peace and quiet before embarking for my day of fun and sun in Newport.
It is free to get inside the Trinity Church, and the hours vary with the seasons and when services are going on. It is another place of worship and tolerance that is a great educational tool for young and old alike.
