This historic Church should be on the top of everyone's list while visiting Abbeville! The stained glass windows are breathtakingly beautiful and the church itself is a classic monument of 19th century church architecture. Don't miss this peaceful sanctuary in this lovely, classic Southern town!

This National Register church is impressive, alright. As you approach along Trinity Street, the view of the tall-steepled front of this venerable Gothic beauty (consecrated 1860) is downright dramatic. Inside, the tall and narrow stained glass windows merit the high praise that reviewers have heaped on them. Trinity Episcopal is located just one block from the town square and definitely... More

A miniature cathedral in this lovely Southern town, with an unbelievable collection of mid-19th century stained glass. So lucky that the church receives visitors all through the week when most other historic buildings are closed. Enjoyed a concert here, too, and the acoustics were world-class.

What a lovely church. It looks like it was transplanted from a village in France. The stained glass windows are lovely and the atmosphere so peaceful.....

A gorgeous old church which has fallen into some disrepair. The visible aging, though, does not detract from its design, its stained glass windows, and it historical value. It's definitely worth spending some time in and around. Its cemetery is interesting, too.

Abbeville has many old churches (many old buildings all over town) but if you like the architecture and especially fantastic old stained glass, you should not miss a visit to this church.

Not only is the beauty and architecture of this church worth seeing, the members are so friendly, welcoming and gracious. The gentleman practicing the organ music welcomed us in and told us about the church's history. He then played Christmas music for us.

This church is lovely. It is not as pristine as other historic churchs but it still very beautiful. When we went there was someone playing the organ - We loved the peace. There is no charge to visit but there is a donation box. Be sure and leave at least a small donation, I know that they will appreciate it.

They had the church open and had all the names of Abbevilles soldiers lost in wars since WW1. The church well preserved and still have services. Some people do not like sores closing at 5 or 6 but is perfect for a wonderful meal and of course your choice to travel on or check in at histoiric hotel and take... More
