The Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, was organized in 1869 with no permanent facility available for worship services. The first church building, located at 12th and J Streets, was erected in 1871 at a cost of $4,000.00. By the late 1880s, however, the congregation had outgrown the small church and erected a new $40,000 building nearby. The first service held in the new facility was on December 1, 1889. Over the years, the building underwent various modifications to accommodate the changing needs of the congregation and was eventually destroyed by fire on January 10, 1957. After much deliberation, the decision was made not to restore the old facility, but to rebuild and relocate the church at 60th and A Streets. The new church was dedicated on May 23, 1960.


This collection of the records of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Lincoln, Nebraska, consists of sixteen volumes arranged in one series: 1) Church Records, 1869-1895, on 2 reels of microfilm. These volumes contain records of membership, marriages, baptisms, burials, communions, confirmations, annual reports and meetings. A brief church history, as well as incorporation information, is included in the first volume, “General index and Parish Register, 1869-1875.” All volumes are numbered as they appear in the “General Index of Church Records” at the beginning of Reel 1.

These records were filmed by the Church, and the negative donated through the courtesy of Rector Steven Mues in February 1985. Additional copies of the entire reel of film can be made only after obtaining donor permission.

Note:  Additional church directories, brochures, etc. were added to the collection after microfilming was completed. These items are not available through interlibrary loan.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
