The temple of the Holy Trinity is the first Greek Orthodox Church founded in South Carolina and lies among the first twenty Greek Orthodox churches built in the United States. The first House of Worship was built in 1910 on St. Philip Street. In 1951, the foundations for the new church of the Holy Trinity were set on Road Street. It was completed in 1953 and it is the first church in the United States built in the authentic Byzantine style. Its floor plans derive from the Cathedral of Hagia Sophia, Constantinople (532-537 BC). The church was listed on the USA National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
