Inscription. Denna klockstapel uppfördes år 1692 invid ett år 1636 uppfört träkapell, vilket nedrevs, när den nya Johannes kyrka blev färdig år 1890. Den gamla kyrkan var belägen framför flickskolan, Johannesgatan 18.

Av stapelns tre klockor ha två flyttats, till den nya kyrkan, där de användas för tornurets slagverk. Den minsta klockan flyttades år 1904 till den då färdigbyggda Stefanskyrkan.


[English translation:]
This bell tower was built in 1692 adjacent to a wooden chapel (built in 1636), which was demolished when the new church of St. John was completed in 1890. The old church was located in front of the girls school, at Johannesgatan 18.

Of the tower's three bells, two were moved to the new church, where they ring within the clock tower. In 1904, the smallest bell was moved to the newly-built Church of St. Stefan. (Marker Number 2025.)
