St. Mary's on the Hill - Pt. 4: For Whom the Bell Tolls

Wednesday evening a large chunk of bell tower of St. Mary's on the Hill, corner of Niagara and Vermont, came tumbling down. Shortly after City workers and news crews were on the scene.

Word last night was that they are going to remove part of the tower, level it down, but will save the bell. The negligent owner better not be the recipient. She might sell it for scrap. Historical Society would be the best place perhaps. We'll see.

And as the rain poured down with thunder and lightening rippling across the darkened sky the workers pried open the doors and rang the bell, one last time.

I read that someone on the preservation board received the bell. THANK GOODNESS.
