Holy Trinity Old Swedes Church

606 Church Street, Wilmington, DE 19801

Dating from 1698, Old Swedes Church is located near the site of the original Swedes' landing and represents one of only two remaining examples of Swedish-American church architecture. Sitting in the center of a tree-shaded, historic graveyard, the church has box-type pews, which seat approximately 250 persons when the gallery is used. The surrounding neighborhood is a mix of low-income housing and light industry.


Additional information about Old Swedes Church and Cemetery may be found on the Old Swedes Foundation website.
