“Oldest Episcopalian Church in RI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

This is the oldest Episcopalian church in RI and it's history goes back to 1693. There is a tour guide to tell you the history of the building and show you around. Of special interest are the stained glass windows. We also liked looking around the church cemetary because of the age

“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

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 Downtown of Newport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

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!

“Beautiful and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

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. What a magnificent, historical location. The grounds, as well, were peaceful and serene, and we spent some time reading the centuries-old tombstones.
