1. St. Andrew Church Bell Marker
Inscription. The original bell from St. Andrew Episcopal church heralded many events in the life of the church and community. Usually an altar boy would be assigned the task of pulling the long rope. It was rung before regular services. It was rung for weddings and funerals. The bell also rang at noon and 5:00 P.M. acting as a reminder for children to run home for meals. After many years of service it was replaced in the early 1990's by an electronically operated bell.
