The church Website formerly included a picture of the tower on the home page, but that is now gone.  The former History page incorrectly described the chime as a "carillon", while the present History page (which is incomplete and badly organized) does not mention the bells at all.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Watervliet) bellfoundry.
