The monastery Website offers both English and Russian versions.  In page headings, a rather foggy photograph shows the two-level gatehouse belfry (left of center) which contains this zvon.  An older zvon (see link below) hangs under the first gable behind the portico over the entrance to the church.

On the same grounds is Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, whose Website does not mention either zvon.

Ranking among all North American chimes by size (number of bells).
