The Bells Are Back in Town.



The bells will ring again. Today, after a major renovation to the bell tower at St. Matthews Church, Hook’s next door neighbor,  13 bronze bells were hoisted back to their rightful place. The historic bells were taken down on July 2, 2008, first time they left the tower since being installed in 1901. They originally cost $7,000. Refurbishing the bell tower is estimated to cost just under $500,000. Start passing the hat.
