Trinity Episcopal Church

Trinity Episcopal Church on the Green in New Haven was founded in 1752 and was situated on the corner of Chapel and Church Street. The present sanctuary was built in 1814 on the corner of Temple and Chapel Streets. It's one of the earliest examples of Gothic Revival in America. The sanctuary has L. C. Tiffany Company windows and a pipe organ built by the Aeolian Skinner Organ Company in 1935.
I was out walking on one of the fine pre-spring days this week and the doors were open so I walked right in. I was taken with the arches and the pipes of the organ. Both seemed to bring me up and looking heaven-ward.
