Church of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1868, John Bolton. 238 S. High St.

Built in the ecclesiastical Victorian Gothic in the local green serpentinite stone, it was, according to parish records, designed by its rector, John Bolton. The tower of the same serpentinite, since removed because of incipient structural failure, was begun by Bolton and completed by T. Roney Williamson in 1889. The adjacent parish building in serpentinite with brick accents (1882, T. Roney Williamson) served the competing Ascension Episcopal congregation until the two churches merged in the twentieth century. At 401 S. High Street is the Episcopal rectory, also said to be the design of Bolton.
