Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Augusta, GA
I have only been in this church once and that was during a Sunday morning mass. I housed an exchange student from Poland for a period of time and we went to mass at Church of the Most Holy Trinity.
This church was built in the Romanesque Style during the time of the Civil War. It took quite a while for it to be completed due to the Union blockades at Southern Ports. The cornerstone was laid July 19, 1857 and was consecrated April 12, 1863.
Smith and Crane Carvers served as the contractors for the church.The DeLaigle family and the Phinizy family of Augusta provided the bricks.
This is a very pleasant church to view from the outside. It is surrounded by nice gardens. The inside has also been well cared for.
Augusta - More than Golf!
