The great tower, over one hundred and sixty-five feet high, of sparkling granite and carved limestone, is a landmark for many miles. There are one hundred eighty granite steps leading to the tower. In this tower is a finely adjusted D Chime of eleven bells. They weigh a total of 14,000 pounds and are played (struck) by iron hammers. The bells were cast by Chester Meneelly of the Meneelly Bell Company of Troy, New York. The original ringer’s gallery is still in the tower even though the bells are now played both by hand or electronically from a small room in the Sanctuary.
