The Trinity College marker on the North Carolina Civil War Trail was dedicated today.
The marker itself was erected in December, but today was the beautiful warm day to get a good crowd together.
The marker is located beside the gazebo made from the old Trinity College chapel columns which shelters the old Trinity College bell, returned to Trinity by Duke University about 15 years ago.
The story of the Gothic papyrus-capital columns, salvaged from the Trinity High School auditorium, is told in the entry on Trinity High School (TR:16) in my architecture book.
The original Trinity College building had some pointed church-like windows which perhaps suggested the Gothic style which became popular for residences around Trinity and Archdale.
One still stands on the west side of NC62 in Trinity (TR:11 in my book).
