Trinity Church

At the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway in the Financial District is Trinity Church, a historic parish church designed by Richard Upjohn in the Gothic Revival style. Though Upjohn’s Trinity Church was completed in 1846, two other iterations of the church once existed, built in 1696 and 1790. The same stones used in the foundation of these two churches remain to this day in Trinity Church’s current iteration. Adjacent to the church is the Trinity Courtyard, which serves as the burial ground for Alexander Hamilton, Albert Gallatin, and Robert Fulton.

An extensive renovation and restoration project on Trinity Church, overseen by Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects, began in 2018. The project worked to maintain the church’s historic features while making it more welcoming and comfortable to enhance the overall worship experience. Changes were also made to improve Trinity Church’s structure, accessibility, and resilience.
