*Links:

The church Website has a wide-angle photo of the building on the splash page. A faint sketch of the building, in which the tower is more vertical, appears as the background of most other pages. The Music Ministry page has a small photo of the chimestand, but incorrectly calls the chime a carillon.

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