The Press of Atlantic City reports that the church located at 7117 Ventnor avenue is in the final stages of being completely demolished.

The doors at the former Trinity United Church have been closed and the doors have been boarded up for some time now. According to Ventnor UMC.com, the cornerstone of the church was first laid in August of 1897 and the church first became a part of the Ventnor community in December of 1897.

The church had to permanently close its doors due to financial reasons. A developer bought the church and building at the beginning of the summer. A detailed plan for the development of building single-family homes at the former site of the United Methodist Church will be presented to the planning board this fall.
