Trinity Episcopal Cathedral & Cemetery

In 1812 a group of Columbians incorporated themselves as the first Episcopal parish in the backcountry. They raised the funds and built a small, wooden cruciform structure on the southeast corner of Gervais and Sumter streets. This church building was dedicated in 1814. The church prospered; and in 1845 a large congregation engaged the services of Edward Brickell White, a well-known architect, to design a new edifice. The present building (minus the transepts), modeled after York Cathedral in England, was consecrated in 1847. It was miraculously spared when Sherman burned Columbia in 1865. Today, it is one of the nation's 20 largest Episcopal churches. James F. Byrnes, statesman and US Supreme Court Justice, and six governors, including Wade Hampton III, are buried in its churchyard.
