Location

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is located in Northwest Portland, only 25 minutes away from Portland International Airport and conveniently situated near public transit (light rail, streetcar, and bus lines). Situated between the popular Pearl District, Slabtown, NW 23rd Ave, and Goose Hollow neighborhoods. Trinity is within walking distance of some of Portland's finest downtown hotels, including Hotel deLuxe, McMenamin's Crystal Hotel, and the Sentinel.

History

Trinity dates back to the 1840s, when it was one of the first parishes established in Portland for the large population of overland immigrants who poured into the area from the Oregon Trail. As more people settled in Portland after the Civil War and the church gathered a larger base of regular members, the building, too, expanded. Together, Trinity’s parishioners purchased a vacant lot on 6th & Oak in SW Portland, and created extra space for the church’s growing occupancy, adding stained glass windows, and building its iconic steeple complete with a bell made from melted down cannons.

In 1902, the original building was destroyed in a fire, and parishioners decided to rebuild a few blocks away at NW 19th Street. The new cathedral that stands proudly in the heart of Northwest Portland was erected in 1906. As a result of this communal collaboration to rebuild and expand, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is an impressive architectural representation of the community’s resilience & unity and is an iconic piece of Portland history.
