   Tower tubes by Deagan,
   donated by Ladies Aid Society,
   installed by C.J.Lustig.
   Congregation has relocated to suburbs,
   but church building remains intact.

*Technical data:

   Electric-keyboard (from organ) chime of 16 tubular bells
   Pitch of heaviest bell is unknown
   Transposition is unknown
   Keyboard range:     ----  /    ----  
   The arrangement of tones and semitones is unknown.
   The whole instrument was installed in 1927
     with tubular bells made by Deagan      
   No auxiliary mechanisms known
   Tower details not available
   Year of latest technical information source is 1927

The church Website has no history, and therefore no indication of when it moved from the downtown building where the chime is located to the present suburban location; but it must have been after 1967, when a new organ was dedicated in the old building (which still stands).
