This is the second temple of Trinity Church, completed in 1790 and demolished, in 1839. Grace Church, old temple at the corner of Broadway and Rector Street, held the first worship service on Sunday, December 21, 1808. The new building, where the church sits today, was consecrated on March 7, 1846.
