The church Website mentions the original church bell and the acquisition of this chime on the History page. There are photos of the building on the History page and in the Gallery. But a former page about the bells, with very good photos, has been removed.

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