On the church Website, the History page mentions that the "10-bell carillon" was refurbished in the 1980s, but there is no other information about it, and no photograph of the building.

A former Website has a photo of the building, with its low central tower; but that's not where the bells are.  The History page mentions the chime, but calls it a "carillon".

A news article (29 My '18) about a forthcoming concert incorrectly attributes the bells to the West Troy foundry.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Meneely (Troy) bellfoundry.
