Restoration - Summer Fall 2017 [UPDATE]
August - September, 2017 -
The initial phase of the restoration began August 24, and was completed on August 29 [see a photo essay here]. The 32 smaller bells were removed and loaded on a trailer to have their clappers rebuilt/refitted in Meeks & Watson’s workshop (in Ohio). The largest of these "small" bells was 12-14” in diameter and about 150 lbs. The 18 largest bells were too large to move. The clappers, however, were removed and replaced with new clappers.
In September, Meeks & Watson returned to replace the now-refurbished smaller bells. After some adjustments and a return trip, the bells are ringing again. And they sound fantastic!
The next chapter in the restoration saga will be upgrades to the keyboard, a new "umbrella" (which prevents water that collects at the base of the tower leaking into the cabin - and on the keyboard - should the water rise above a certain level) AND a complete restoration and refurbishment of the practice carillon which resides in Spurrier.
That being said . . .
