First Church of Christ, Newport
Trinity Church, located on Queen Anne Square in Newport, is the oldest Episcopal church in Rhode Island. The congregation was founded in 1698, and the current building was constructed from 1725 to 1726. It was designed by by local builder Richard Munday, who based the architecture off drawings of churches in London. Inside you will find a unique pulpit in the center of the aisle and box pews.
Some of the people who attended services here include Charles Theodore Pachelbel, Oliver Hazard Perry, George Washington, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Andrew, Cornelius Vanderbilt II, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
I took the picture of this Chucrh for two reasons: I liked the building and I can't believe how many churches are in Newport. The building looked like a library or government building to me...it wasn't until I saw the sign that I found out it was a church.
