Trinity AME Church
Gouldtown, Cumberland County


The date of its organization is unknown, but this fine meetinghouse-style building was erected in 1860. It repeats in a smaller scale, the Presbyterian church in Springfield, which is a bit unusual, as churches in the southern part of the state usually looked to Philadelphia for architectural style.
