Regarding Trinity Episcopal Church. From the National Register of Historic Places registration:
The congregation of Trinity Episcopal Church was established in 1859. By 1860 they had purchased a building from First Cumberland Presbyterian Church. After this building was destroyed by fire during the Civil War, services were first held in the courthouse and then later in Carrick Academy. A campaign was underway in 1870 to raise money for the construction of a new building. On July 16, 1872, Bishop Charles Quintard wrote that the foundation of Trinity Church had been laid. The building was completed in 1874 at its present location.
