Located at Broadway and East 18th Avenue in Denver, Colorado, Trinity United Methodist Church was placed on the National Register of Historic Places July 28th, 1970. Architecture and Ornamentation Modern Gothic Trinity United Methodist Church is one of the finest examples of "Modern Gothic" architecture in the United States. According to definitions of design, "the church is an auditorium clothed in a Gothic shell." What made the building "modern" in 1888 was the marriage of Gothic detailing, and a Rococo theater with the latest technology. By using blocks of locally quarried Castle Rock rhyolite on the building’s face exterior, Robert Roeschlaub was able to stay true to the traditions of the "Arts and Crafts movement." This simply means that he looked to nature for inspiration. The rhyolite facing and sandstone trim allow the church to blend with its native surroundings. The opportunity to build Trinity’s spire was "the magnificent goal of Robert Roeschlaub’s career as a church designer." The spire stands 183’ 7 1Ï2" from the ground. Because of the height, the usual scaffoldings and cranes couldn’t be used during construction. Roeschlaub invented a cage-like mechanism that surrounded the spire, allowing workers and needed materials to be raised and lowered. In 1888, it was one of the tallest stone towers in the United States. At the main Broadway entrance to the church you will find patterned wrought-iron gates. Portions of the gates and their hinges were designed by the architect in the tradition of medieval prototypes. Additions have since been made. www.trinityumc.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=...
