Trinity Church (Episcopal) 1852-53. Claremont (120 Broad Street at Chapel).
Designed by the New York firm of Wills and Dudley, planners of many churches and public buildings, Trinity Church is one of New Hampshire's best Stick-style structures. Erected on the site of an old round brick chapel, Trinity displays the vertical, horizontal, and diagonal "stickwork" and projecting eaves which are characteristic features of the style. Its silhouette is irregular, its floor plan asymmetrical, its proportions tall, and its roofs steeply pitched. Although the original bell tower blew down some years ago, the church remains an important example of its style.
5. Trinity Episcopal Church, Broad St. (L), a neo-Gothic structure of wood, has several stained-glass windows of interest, that over the altar having been designed by Harry Kensington Lloyd, a native of Claremont.
7. Trinity Episcopal Church (120 Broad St.): 1852-3, early Stick Style, basilica plan with added chapel, corner tower gone since 1938.
