This 1870s record of Trinity Episcopal Parish’s first home at Third Avenue and Jefferson Street is also one of Seattle’s earliest photographic records. After the destruction of their clapboard sanctuary in the city’s Great Fire of 1889, Trinity built the stone church they still worship in on the James Street climb to First Hill. In 1910 the old church site was taken for the home of the Arctic Club, since converted to the Morrison Hotel. Beside it to the south is the Third Avenue and Yesler Way entrance to the bus tunnel.
