*Links:

The new church Website has no picture of the building, but offers a nice video of the chime being played as a duet.  That's also accessible from the Music Ministries page, which has a couple of sentences about the bells. Formerly, the Ministries page has a link to a page about the bells, with a photo of the tower top.
The old church Website has a drawing of the building.

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