A church bell with a clapper

February 2020 Newsletter Now Available

From our Sexton: In the category of “other duties as requested” was the recent investigation of the church’s bell. Eugene Burns, a self-described passionate fan of church and lighthouse bells made by the Meneely Bell Foundry (1826-1950) in Watervliet, NY, called to ask about our bell. As it was a nice day, and not wanting to rummage through the books in the history closet, I decided to climb the steeple to look for myself. Mr. Burns was happy to learn that we indeed have a Meneely bell. Note: The Children’s Chime Tower also has Meneely bells.
