Trinity Lime Rock is the oldest known structure built as a part of the Upper Housatonic Valley iron industry that is still standing, still substantially unchanged, and still in active use for the identical purpose for which it was originally constructed. The Barnum and Richardson families, who ran the Lime Rock Foundry from 1840 to 1919, as well as other iron furnaces and fabricating facilities in the area (the Beckley Furnace, in East Canaan, Connecticut's only official Industrial Monument is the best preserved) were also responsible for the construction of Trinity Church in 1872.
