The Holy Trinity Church, also known as the Church of the Holy Trinity (Episcopal) is a church located at 325 Gold Street in Juneau, Alaska. The present building was built in 2009, replacing an 1896 structure which burned on March 12, 2006.[2]

The old church was designed by architect George E. James in the Carpenter Gothic style, and was built by Foss and Olsen in 1896 to serve a mission congregation founded only the year before. Sometime before 1914 the church building was raised up to allow the addition of a basement. The parish hall built in 1956 did not continue the Carpenter Gothic architecture of the church itself. From 1918-1914, the church served as the pro-cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska. On October 19, 1978, the church was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1][3][4][5]
