Also see . . . Trinity Episcopal Church - History. Trinity Episcopal Church began as part of a missionary movement in the late 1700's. The first sixteen ministers of the church were missionaries from this movement. Most of the early information about Trinity and the early ministers who served it has come from the missionary publication called The Spirit of the Missions. The Reverend William Spencer Wall is listed in the first Parish Register of "Trinity Church" as having services in a building where he taught school in Florence (Rev. Wall is credited with having the second school in Florence). As stated on the historical marker (see picture above) that stands outside the church building, Reverend Cook organized "Trinity Episcopal Church" in 1836.
