Long Description:
Photos taken on 17 January 2022. The steeple is one of many artistic ones that line Church Street in Frederick. This specific one stand at about 150 feet tall and can be seen from the nearby courthouse. It has a triangular shape which meets at a point at the top. It includes a clock tower, with a clock at 90 degree intervals, and a bell tower below the clock.

Taken from the website, "The stone tower is all that remains of the original church built in 1763. Rebuilt in 1881 as Trinity Chapel, its graceful 1807 colonial steeple is the oldest of the “clustered spires of Frederick.” The grave of the pastor who baptized Francis Scott Key is in the old tower, and the steeple houses the historic town clock. A beautiful 1898 stained glass window depicting “Christ in the Temple” is on the second floor. The ten bell chimes in the tower and steeple are played weekly. The building contains a cruciform chapel and the classrooms of the Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ (see B). *civil war* Bell chime demonstrations (4–9pm)"
