Trinity United Presbyterian Church is an historic worship center in rural Fayette County.
The present church building was dedicated on March 8, 1896 as First Presbyterian Church and became Trinity United Presbyterian Church in 1962. It is a beautiful building designed by Pittsburgh architect William Kauffman in the French Gothic style. Closely resembling H.H. Richardson’s Trinity Church in Boston, the style is often called Richardson Romanesque. It is built of Peninsula blue sandstone and roofed with deep red corrugated tile. The massive square lantern tower, rising 150 feet above the ground, dominates the Uniontown skyline.
The interior of the church is ornately decorated with a vine motif inspired by Jesus’ words in the Gospel Of John: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Apart from me, you can do nothing.”
Perhaps the most beloved and outstanding feature of the building is the beautiful stained glass windows from the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company of New York. Part of Louis C. Tiffany’s award-winning exhibit at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, they were purchased and donated by a member of the congregation.
