Default Church bell

This is the Buckeye bell that was put in the Cumberland Presbyterian church in Jefferson, Texas, in 1872. no doubt delivered by steamboat. The yoke is pretty elaborate and I hope the detail shows some of the relief on the top of the bell. And this is a bell few have ever seen. One used to have to climb a very rickety ladder about 30 feet up but there is now a much safer access. It is still rung every Sunday. Please pardon the pidgeon poop.
