Trinity Church is a historic church at 536 Milton Road in the Milton section of Litchfield, Connecticut. It is a single-story wood frame structure, designed by Oliver Dickinson and completed in 1826. Dickinson began his design in 1802, seeking to emulate the second building of the Trinity Church in Manhattan (torn down in 1839). The building features a distinctive mix of Classical and Gothic Revival features, and houses an organ that was built in 1823, making it possibly the oldest in New England.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[1]
