AAA Editor Notes
Old Trinity Church is w. of US 50 on SR 16/Church Creek Rd. The restored church dates prior to 1690 and still is in use. The adjoining cemetery contains graves of the Carroll family, one of whom, Anna Ella Carroll, was such a close advisor to President Lincoln that many consider her an unofficial member of his cabinet. A brilliant military strategist, Carroll devised the Tennessee campaign, credited by some historians with securing the Union's victory in the Civil War.
