Trinity Episcopal Church - Table of Contents

Interior - Christ Chapel
371 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY

Built: 1869
Arthur Gilham

The small unassuming chapel now sits within the shadow of Trinity Church. The New York City architects Ralph Adams Cram and Bertram Goodhue are responsible for the current interior datingfrom 1913. They added the decorated Gothic ceiling, the stone pillars, the chancel and the carved choir stalls. In the chancel they placed a triptych reredos depicting "The Boy Christ in the Temple." Originally the church was little more than a room with a platform at one end of it.
