The Trinity church is a beautiful old structure with an amazing history. For a small donation a member of the current day congregation gives a tour adjusted to whatever the visitor would like to hear, in depth or a short version.

Beautiful Episcopal church in the center of Newport, built in 1726. In front of the church is a small graveyard, stones with various descriptions, and early remains of some structures. Definitely attend a Sunday service!

We popped in to Trinity Church during the day while walking downtown because it was Easter and I wanted to see the location made (semi) famous by Moonrise Kingdom.

I was in total awe when I first looked up Queen Anne Square, and saw the magnificent spire of Trinity Church. The church , built in 1726 is the model for most all spired churches thru out New England.

The beauty and simplicity of this church are remarkable, and some of its features (pulpit, altar) are unique. And, the rector gives a fine sermon!

This is a church frequented by our first president, George Washington when he was anywhere in the area. Beautiful inside and outside. The rector is a friendly and helpful person who obviously loves her job.

Beautiful, distinctive and historic church with members who love to share it with others. Look for the Tiffany windows and give a donation to help them keep it up.

The docent was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed sitting in George Washington's pew and the exquisite glass windows.

I love visiting all types of churches when I go on vacation. The history inside this one is amazing. The Tiffany stained glass windows are so beautiful.
