Trinity United Methodist Church
Charleston, SC 29401
Tuesday - Friday 8:00a - 12:00p
The original Trinity Primitive Methodist Church was a wooden structure built in 1792 but was destroyed by the Charleston fire of 1838. It was replaced by a brick building which stood until 1902 after having suffered fire, federal bombardment during the Civil War, hurricanes, and an earthquake. The last Trinity sanctuary on Hasell Street was used only 24 years by the congregation.
In 1926, Trinity purchased the present church here on Meeting Street from Westminster Presbyterian Church. The Sanctuary was produced as a Christian version of the Roman temple complete with grand portico and imposing Corinthian columns. It is quite beautiful.
