Building/structure dates: 1872 initial construction
Significance: Trinity Parish Chapel was designed by Southport architects Disbrow & Taylor and erected 1871-72. This Gothic Revival building is an excellent example of the rural church architecture which enjoyed widespread popularity throughout the country at mid-century. Designed on a simple rectangular nave-type plan with a frontal porch and decorative wooden bell cote, the small chapel's board-and-batten siding and modest though strong Gothic details create a composition which is both representative of the spirit of its time and purely unique to this sheltered coastal village. The chapel was built during Rev. Edward Wells' rectorship. As an ardent believer in religious training, he dedicated the chapel as the parish school.
