The city Website provides a main page from which one can eventually find a building photo and locator map - the bells are in the tall thin skeletal steel tower.

A local page of city history describes the relocations of City Hall and offers another perspective view of the present building.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Taylor bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
