Fredonia Church Receives Grant

FREDONIA — Trinity Episcopal Church in Fredonia is one of 21 sites to receive a grant from the NY Landmarks Conservancy.

The grant totaling $226,000 is awarded to historic religious properties throughout New York state. Trinity Episcopal Church will receive $7,000 to help pay for restoration and re-leading of its memorial windows. Trinity Episcopal Church is an early Gothic Revival church constructed in 1834-1835 and is a component of the National Register-listed Fredonia Commons Historic District. The church reaches about 550 people a year through various community activities. The conservancy’s Sacred Sites program has assisted more than 750 congregations across New York state since its founding in 1986 with grants totaling more than $12 million.

“Religious buildings are key to a community’s history and sense of place,” said Peg Breen, New York Landmarks Conservancy president.
