The Bells of Marbletown
A lost sound? Clarions have replaced the ringing of bells in many churches, but early residents can still remember when the bells used to ring. Since we visited the Marbletown Reformed Church in April 2007, we have learned that the bells are being rung again on Sunday mornings.
This story has been condensed and edited from a longer interview.
