This very large tabernacle is used often for concerts, meetings and for Illumination Night where all the "gingerbread cottges" are lit up. A very impressive sight and only done once in the summer.

The tabernacle is place in the centre of the square containing the Gingerbread Cottages which have a very interesting history. Well worth a visit if you happen to be on Martha's Vineyard

You can't miss the Tabernacle in the center of the park in the center of 'campgrounds with its many little Victorian homes circling the park like the rings of a tree. Not much happens here these days, but walk into the structure to view the lovely stained glass, something I missed on my first few visits.

This tabernacle is surrounded by iconic gingerbread houses, these ornate little house are a joy to see. This started way back in the 1800 by Methodist who built this camp ground for meetings.

Visit this at the same time as "The Gingerbread Houses" of "The Campground, they are all in the same area. The tabernacle is the centre of "The Campground". It has an interesting history and while not architecturally particulary attractive it is a huge open sided church where the community started.

Take the time to wander through the Tabernacle. The architecture is inspiring, acoustics are spot on and the space is overwhelmingly humbling and unque.

This tabernacle built by the Methodist church for their camp meetings. It is an incredible sight amidst some of the most beautiful houses you will see anywhere. It is spiritual and historic as well as being a little touristy. This is a can't miss site.

Great location in the middle of lots of quaint, beautiful little colorful cottages. Very unique area and well worth a visit. The tabernacle was huge with lots of seating and a nice stage. Great area to rest and cool off on a hot day. Grounds were well maintained and area was just awesome. Great little museum with inexpensive gift shop... More

This is the heart of this National Historic Landmark. It is beautiful architecture steamed in tradition and pure Victoriana. Surrounded by agueably America's most artistic and colorful neighborhood, the former Cottage City, a visit here is a pure delight.

We loved Trinity Park! We were not able to find it in the first place but when we finally arrived there we were impressed with the beauty of this place. It is a must see!
