Revival of the Holy Trinity Church in Trinidad

From this…

 I don’t know who was involved in restoring the old church, but the results are nothing short of amazing. 

It is a shame the folks in Arcata were not as successful in their efforts to save this one.

I believe the Historical Sites Society of Arcata was formed after the destruction of this beautiful building to prevent the loss of other historical resources in that community.

    I spent many a time in this building. It was much more the Masonic Temple than a city hall. The city rented all the ground floor from the Masons. A reading room was on the corner on the bottom floor with newspapers from all over the world – well, at least the country. What a shame it was not preserved.
