*Links:

The church Website has a bit of information about the old bells (one by G.W.Coffin, 1843, 3363 lbs; and three by George L. Hanks, 1847) but not about the new chime, and there is no photo of the building exterior.

The Emporis Buildings page has no photos yet, but does mention the original bell, attributing it to Levi Coffin (which is highly unlikely).
(Also see our Emporis Advice.)

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
