*Links:

The church Website has a building photo on the home page, but it doesn't show the tower.  A different view is on the Directions page, where only the top of the tower can be seen.  Two other views are on the Weddings page.  Nothing is said about the bells.

A regional visitor's guide has a good photo of the ornate building and tower.

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