Historic Stenciling Project

This unique Historic Stenciling Project has now been completed at Trinity Episcopal Church, New Haven, one of three churches on the New Haven Green, all of which are included in the National Historic Landmark District. This project was supported by grants from The Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and  the National Trust for Historic Preservation, both matched by Trinity Church.

For more, see the Trinity Historic Stenciling Project (with embedded videos) and/or Trinity Historic Stenciling Project, Part Two — or click on the images below, one at a time.

The first presentation focuses on the stenciling work done primarily by parishioners and other New Haveners over the summer of 2014 under the grant from the State of Connecticut Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).
