Trinity Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1964, J. Everette Fauber Jr. N. Main St. at Yancey Ave.

In the late nineteenth century a middle- and upper-class residential neighborhood developed along and around N. Main Street. Fauber's church, built to the front of a church dating to 1927 and linked to it by a series of annexes, has a cross-shaped sanctuary with side aisles and a rear balcony. His Colonial Revival design is modeled on Tidewater Virginia's colonial brick churches, especially Merchant's Hope Episcopal Church of c. 1725 in Prince George County. The gable-end church is illuminated by large, round-arched windows. Orange-colored bricks instead of rubbed brick outline the openings and cement shingles take the place of wooden ones.
