Trinity Episcopal Church is an historic Episcopal church building at 88 Walker Street in Lenox, Massachusetts.


It was built in 1888 in the Gothic Revival style for the use of a congregation composed in part of the wealthy summer visitors to The Berkshires, who funded its construction. The church was the location of society weddings. For example, on June 6, 1895, James A. Burden II, an heir to the Burden Iron Works, wed Florence Adele Sloan, a direct descendant of Cornelius Vanderbilt, in this church.[2]

In 1990, New England Magazine wrote that "few cities can boast churches of greater beauty".[3]

Architectural significance

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
