Description The Trinity United Methodist Church.Another example of the juxtaposition between old and new architecture in Denver. The oldest congregation in Denver. It is still in operation and has been since 1859. You have probably seen this iconic building as youve driven down Broadway, and the structure is truly stunning. It was designed by Colorados first licensed architect, Robert Roeschlaub, and is the perfect example of the Gothic Revival architectural style. It is built completely out of rhyolite brought in from Castle Rock and includes a huge stained glass window by the renowned Tiffany Company. This stunning church towers over the Colfax neighborhood and is an icon which can be seen for miles. Construction on this church started in 1902 and was completed in 1911. There has been a lot of renovation and construction on this beautiful building, including the two times it has been struck by lightening in 1912 and 1997. The iconic style of this church is the French Gothic style and was designed by Leon Coquard from Detroit, Michigan. It features two 210-foot spires and is constructed from limestone and granite. Inside the church, the altar, statuary and bishops chair are all made of marble from Italy. Pope John Paul II held mass at the cathedral during World Youth Day in 1993, a rare honor for American cathedrals. This is another exceptionally stunning example of amazing churches in the Denver area.
