Established in 1869, Vicksburg's Episcopal Church of the Holy Trinity is one of the most distinctive features of the city skyline, visible from the river as well as throughout the city. Its slate-covered steeple towers almost 200 feet from the street.
Constructed of local red brick in Norman gothic style and featuring stunning stained glass, Holy Trinity is listed in the Episcopal Handbook as one of the nation's 10 most beautiful Episcopal churches. Among its stained glass windows are 6 large panels crafted by Tiffany studios, making it the site of more than half the documented Tiffany windows in Mississippi.
Now approaching its sesquicentennial year, the structure still serves an active Episcopal congregation, offering worship services open to the public every Sunday morning.
