Main Street – 74

Trinity Episcopal Church

Trinity Episcopal Church - newThis Episcopal Church was founded by their congregation in 1850. The construction of this building was sponsored by Colonel John Travers who lived on Cheesequake Creek.

It didn’t become a full parish until 1958. When the church was deemed too small (it could only seat 75), new property was purchased on Ryers Lane in the Freneau section for a new church, which was dedicated in June 1968.  Their congregation continues to meet on Ryers Lane in Freneau.

The church was converted into a restaurant first known as Bartholomew’s, then Barts, and currently, A Salute.
