Springfield College
According to a 1937 guide to Massachusetts, the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church formed part of a connecting group of buildings of Gothic architecture designed by Allen and Collins, including a community house with a gymnasium, swimming pool, playrooms, auditorium with well-equipped stage, and other facilities. It is surmounted by a tower containing a carillon of sixty-one bells. The church contains a series of twenty-four stained-glass windows representing historic personages with the theme 'The Light of Christ in the Life of Civilization.”
