Built between 1925 and 1928, Blessed Trinity Church is considered to be the purest replication of twelfth century Lombard-Romanesque architecture in the USA. In addition to its listing on the National Register of Historic Places, it is a NYS Historical Site and was the first architectural landmark recognized by Buffalo’s Landmark & Preservation Board in 1977.
Experienced docents will be on hand to highlight the building’s history and design and share their knowledge of its unique handmade bricks set in a style dating back to the Middle Ages, the extensive use of terra cotta in its construction, and the fantastic array of Christian symbolism found in its sculpture and artwork. The Christmas setting will be a bonus for visitors to this church that needs no decoration. Weather permitting, the 90-minute tourism opportunity will include an interpretation of the building’s ornate facade.
Located at 317 Leroy Avenue in Buffalo, the church is wheelchair accessible with ample off-street parking behind the church and adjacent to the east side door.
