Boston's Trinity Church was designed by architect H. H. Richardson and first opened its doors to parishioners in 1876. The building's iconic design is a masterpiece of American architecture and considered singular enough to be given its own term "Richardsonian Romanesque."

The style is characterized by a clay roof, polychromy, rough stone, heavy arches, and a dominating tower. It would be copied in public building around the country for decades to come.

The church's major windows were deigned by Edward Burne-Jones and executed by William Morris and were to revolutionize the craft of stained glass through the use layered opalescent glass.

Trinity Church is a National Historic Landmark and the only church in the country to be honored as one of "The Ten Most Significant Buildings in America" by the American Institute of Architecture.

"Boston By Gaslight" groups a set of images from the turn of the last century that captured some of the city's beloved landmarks in the glow of the gas-lit illumination unique to the period.
