Trinity Episcopal Church on the Green, New Haven, Connecticut

Formed in 1723, the parish of Trinity Episcopal Church on the Green is known for having a major influence on introducing the notion of the separation of church and state to the colonies. Trinity’s current structure, completed in 1816 by architect Ithiel Town, is the first Gothic Revival Style church built in North America. With its towering gilded columns, red and green interior palette, and remarkable stained glass windows, its ornamental design reaffirms its historical associations with the Church of England.
