All photos were taken in May 2018... So Lets Talk about that Church Bell and Tower: It was manufactured in 1893 by Meneely Bell Foundry out of West Troy, NY It is not known what material it is made out of, but I believe it could be solid bronze in which case from my research it is worth a significant amount of money!!!! If you do research on this particular bell it has a value to collectors of anywhere between $5,000 to $12,000 and some have fetched even much higher prices if made out of bronze! The bell is huge. Shy of 3 feet in Diameter, It literally takes up a big portion of the belfry as you can note from some of the photos. Even the cast Iron Bells can be worth thousands to collectors... The Church Balcony Features a Hidden access panel. The ceiling in the Church is all Ornate Tin (Also this ornate Tin is valuable and could be worth a considerable amount of money) and the panel in the ceiling opens up to the lower part of the bell Tower below the belfry. There is a wooden ladder going up along the wall to the belfry where the bell is located and a 2nd access panel. In this area you can also see see the Rafters of the Church and the solid beams. The wood posts are huge and old lumber of this sort is worth a considerable amount of money as well if you wanted to dismantle the church for the scrap value. When you reach the Belfry, the views up here of the Baseball Field and Mountains in the background are breathtaking... The bell still rings and has a beautiful Loud Chime with its' enormous size. You can imagine the Bell Ringer's ringing the bell on Sunday's with the Village of Turin hearing its' beautiful sound!
