Trinity Episcopal Cathedral dates back to the 1840s, when Reverend Michael Fackler - the first Anglican clergyman in all of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Montana - established the Portland parish for a 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 and Oak in 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 cathedral, located at 6th and Oak, was destroyed in a fire. Parishioners decided to rebuild the house of worship once again, however this time a few blocks away at NW 19th Street. The new cathedral that stands proudly in the heart of Northwest Portland was then consecrated in 1906. As a result of this communal collaboration to rebuild and expand, the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral has been an impressive architectural representation of the community’s resilience and unity.
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is located in Northwest Portland, only 25 minutes away from Portland International Airport.
