Printing Year: 1857

Condition/Details: Bound in blindstamped full leather with raised bands and bright embossed gilt lettering to front cover, this antique volume is a scarce local church history authored by Edward Young Buchanan (1811 - 1895).

Old Trinity Church, also known as Trinity Church, Oxford, is a historic Episcopal church founded in Oxford Township, Pennsylvania, which is now part of Philadelphia. The present building was erected in 1711 of red and black brick believed to have been brought from England. The church was founded with the help of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. The church's first pastor, the Rev. John Clubb, who served from about 1705 to 1715, and later the Rev. Robert Weyman, who served during the 1720s, were paid by the Society and shared duties between Oxford and St. David's Church in Radnor, located about 20 miles to the west.

In 1713, Queen Anne presented several silver utensils, including a chalice, to the church. In 1759, the pews were installed. In 1807, the flooring was completed, and the entrance was moved from the north side to the west end. In 1833, the transepts were added, and in 1839, the tower was built. In 1875, according to a design by architect Frank Furness, the tower was shortened to one story, and the present corner tower and belfry were added. Minor additions were made in 1932.
