La Iglesia congregacional Unida de Cristo, como se le conoce de manera más formal, se ha destacado en New Haven Green desde 1639. La estructura georgiana actual data de 1812. El arquitecto, Ithiel Town, incorporó grandes ventanas en el diseño para dejar pasar la luz del sol, ya que no había sistema de calefacción. Una hermosa ventana Tiffany, instalada en 1890, representa al Rev. John Davenport llevando adelante el primer servicio en la nueva colonia. La histórica cripta contiene los restos de la primera esposa de Benedict Arnold. Hay un pequeño cementerio detrás de la iglesia, donde yacen los restos del regicida John Dixwell.
It never ceases to amaze visitors and even locals that New Haven is a city of firsts. Trinity, besides being the first Episcopal congregation in New Haven when it was founded in 1752, also erected the first Gothic Revival building in the United States in 1812-15. Designed by prolific Ithiel Town, who also designed the neighboring Center Church), Trinity is a superb example of medieval architecture, and has been a tourist attraction almost since it was built. It stands on the northwest corner of the historic green.
