Ossining in Westchester County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Trinity Episcopal Church / Iglesia Episcopal Trinity
Trinity Episcopal Church is a Gothic Revival limestone building built in 1891 and designed by Robert W. Gibson. It is laid out in the form of a cross along an East-West axis and has several stained-glass windows made by the Louis Comfort Tiffany Studios and the John Gotham Company. The Westminster Chimes in the bell tower, four bronze bells cast in 1895 in Troy, New York, strike the familiar Cambridge Quarters. The largest bell weighs nearly a ton and is inscribed "Let Him That Heareth Say Come." The smaller bells are inscribed with their names: Faith, Hope, Charity. Trinity's congregation was formed in 1868 by Civil War veterans and other local citizens who were prominent in banking, manufacturing and other commercial ventures in the then Village of Sing Sing.
