Trinity Church Tales to Remember

A collection of historical stories, legends, myths and more from the Trinity United Presbyterian Church of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. The semi-gothic church building near the center of downtown has been a wonder to visitors and locals alike for over a century. When was it built? What are its secrets? The tales in this volume span the life of the church in its entirety. Photographs that were not seen for many decades scatter the pages. Meet the people who lived, loved and worshiped within the walls, to include "Coal Baron" J.V. Thompson and other notable characters. Delve into the captivating mysteries that surround the magnificent meeting house, such as the case of the famous Tiffany windows. As you learn about the structure from its tower tops to its acclaimed interior along the way, decide for yourself what you believe about the riveting accounts of bygone days and the stories that have been handed down through the generations.
