History Ministry Docent Tours – July 2016
Trinity historians will conduct tours of Trinity each Sunday in July at 11:30 am. Each tour will last about 45 minutes and will begin in the Narthex (entry vestibule). Children are welcome, but need to be accompanied by an adult.
Each tour guide will have his/her own focus, but generally these tours of Trinity Church on the New Haven Green will focus on a general history of the building whose cornerstone was set in 1814 with the building completed by the end of 1815 and consecrated in early 1816. The contrast of Trinity’s building style as compared to that of Center Church, both designed by the architect Ithiel Town, will be the springboard to the tour. We will then go inside to see the variety of interior nave (sanctuary) elements from its Tiffany windows to its three distinctive altars.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
