Photo: Trinity Church, Fishkill NY


DSC00005.JPGI am on the road today and tomorrow, but after lunch today I had the privilege of visiting one of the oldest Anglican churches in America. Trinity Church, Fishkill NY is over 250 years old and the building itself is 240 years old. The historical marker reads:

Organized by Rev. Samuel Seabury [in] 1756, built 1760. Provincial congress met here Sept. 1776. Used as hospital during Revolution

It is a very simple structure, not in the original layout, but form (so the rector told me). Note the stain-glass. There is no depiction of human or animal forms, but the lovely geometric representation of the Trinity. (Does anyone know what that is called? There must be some specific name, there always is in iconography.)
