Trinity Church inside and in the Cemetary is a must see especially after seeing the Breakers. The stained glass windows by Tiffany for the Vanderbilt’s was worth seeing. The tour guide had some excellent info on the church and where to go in Newport.

A must visit on your historical trip to Newport. Right off the main street in Newport, it offers quite an experience into the past glory of this historical place.

The church's age alone makes it worth a stop and the dates on the tombstones are very old and worth a look.

Stopped by to get a few shots at the pumpkin patch. Beautiful church. Worth a stop. Lots of dogs at the park at the bottom of the hill.

A little surprising to find the grounds covered in pumpkins of every possible size you can imagine the church is the oldest in Newport built in 1726
