Photo Friday - Bells Part 7

Welcome back to Photo Friday. Here, I one or more photos each Friday. I will do my best to relate it to It's a Wonderful Life.


This week’s entry is the bell outside St. James United Methodist Church, 201 S. Second St., North Baltimore, OH. These photos were taken March 9, 2015.

This church is interesting because its signage tells a story. The cornerstone on the building says "First Methodist Church," and indicates that it was built in the 1890s. The plaque above the bell is dated 1867 from Hammansburg Methodist Church (Hammansburg is was just down the road from North Baltimore). The bell must have been moved to its current location, which is now called St. James United Methodist Church.

Due to the holiday weekend, I will post on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday next week.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and remember the ones we lost by ringing a bell of your own!
