Rediscovering the UCC Steeple Bell - Part 2

H. Our Church Bell

There it is! Our church bell is aging beautifully for being 180 years old.

When the rope in the attic is pulled to ring it, the clapper in the center remains stationary. The outer bell is rocked from side to side via a circular wooden wheel. you can see a small white spot on the inside of the bell where it hits the clapper. There is one on the opposite side as well.
