Buffalo has many churches that are significant in the city's architectural history. One of these churches is the Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic Church on Leroy Avenue. Designed by architect Chester Oakley and built from 1923-1928, this church, according to "Buffalo Architecture: A Guide" (MIT Press, 1983), exemplifies a Northern Italian Romanesque-style common to Lombardy.
