The culmination of Frances Benjamin Johnston’s work as an architectural photographer is the Carnegie Survey of the Architecture of the South, a systematic record of the early buildings and gardens of nine southern states that was executed between 1933 and 1940 with the financial assistance of thc Carnegie Corporation. Miss Johnston (1864-1952) worked chiefly in Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, and Louisiana and to a lesser degree in Florida. She was one of the first to document vernacular building traditions, photographing not only the great mansions of the South, but churches, graveyards, row houses, offices, kitchens, warehouses, mills, shops, farm buildings, and inns. The survey includes records of severely altered and poorly maintained structures and numerous shots of interiors, furnishings, and architectural details.

Trinity Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The congregation was originally founded in 1733. The current Church building was erected after its former site burned in the Great Boston Fire of 1872, under the direction of Rector Phillips Brooks.

The building was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and designed and built from 1872 to 1877, when it was consecrated. Trinity Church is the building that established Richardson’s reputation and the birthplace of the "Richardson Romanesque" style, characterized by a clay roof, polychromy, rough stone, heavy arches, and a massive tower. This style was soon adopted for a number of public buildings across the United States, and is the first American architectural style imitated in Europe and Canada. It is the only church in the United States, and the only building in Boston, that has been honored as one of the 10 most significant buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). In 1885 it was voted the most important building in America by architects, and over a century later the AIA still lists the Church among the top 10 American buildings, making it the only building to remain on the original list.

The building’s plan is a modified Greek Cross with four arms extending outwards from the central tower, which stands 211 ft tall. Situated in Copley Square next to the John Hancock Tower in Back Bay, which was originally a mud flat, Trinity rests on some 4500 wooden piles, each driven through 30 feet of gravel fill, silt, and clay, and constantly wetted by a pump so they do not rot if exposed to air.

Its interior murals, which cover over 21,500 square feet were completed entirely by American artists. Richardson and Brooks decided that a richly colored interior was essential and turned to an at the time unknown John La Farge. The Church’s windows were originally clear glass at consecration but later adorned. Four windows were designed by Edward Burne-Jones and executed by William Morris. Another four windows were done by La Farge, who used a revolutionary style of layering opalescent glass.

In 2007, Trinity Church was ranked #25 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.

The First Church of Christ, Scientist, at 13 Waterhouse Street, was designed in 1917 by church member Giles M. Smith of the noted Boston architectural firm of Bigelow and Wadsworth (later Bigelow, Wadsworth, Hubbard and Smith), who patterned it after Thomas Jefferson’s The Rotunda at the University of Virginia and the Pantheon in Rome. Due to cost constraints, the 6-story domed building was built in two phases between 1924 and 1930. The dome itself was designed and built by the noted Guastavino Fireproof Construction Company. Guastavino used its patented tile arch system consisting of Akoustolith, a porous ceramic material resembling stone, on the interior, with limestone on the exterior. The first services in the completed building were held on April 30, 1930, and after becoming debt free, it was dedicated on May 23, 1937. First Church of Christ, Scientist is still located in the building and is still an active branch of the Christian Science Mother Church.

Be It Remembered: The Story of Trinity Episcopal Church on Capital Square, Columbus, Ohio

Be It Remembered: The Story of Trinity Episcopal Church on Capital Square, Columbus, Ohio

“Be It Remembered…” With these words, the founding members of Trinity Episcopal Church marked their first meeting as a congregation in May of 1817 and committed themselves to the future. They mandated acts of remembrance–from worship to writing baptismal records–that continue to this day and culminate in the history you now hold in your hands. Here is the story of one of the first congregations established in Columbus and the only one that has maintained a continual presence on Capitol Square, the heart of Ohio’s capital city. Trinity’s central location has been a defining feature of its history, shaping the congregation, its worship, and its public works. The church is a city landmark, named in the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by Gordon Lloyd in the Gothic Revival style and built after the Civil War, trinity Church is known for its tower and chimes, its historic stained glass windows, and the carved reredos over its marble altar. People are drawn to Trinity because of its location and its architecture, two constant features of the church in a changing environment. Throughout its history, the congregation has been home to all sorts and conditions of men and women. Thus Trinity fulfills the words from Isaiah inscribed above the church’s red doors: “An house of prayer for all people.” In Klein’s telling, Trinity’s unique story unfolds against the backdrop of Columbus and the nation. The broader canvas in the changing religious and secular climate of the last 200 years.
