Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
Last week we mentioned that restoration work had begun on the old bell tower/steeple of the historic St. Augustine's Episcopal Church in the Upper Village.
Well the scaffolding is down, rich red paint has been re-applied and the bell has been polished to its former glory with just enough patina remaining. Click on the photo.

Bell especially looks good.ReplyDelete
I noticed how vivid the red was this morning. What a difference but I have to agree the bell looks almost brand new.ReplyDelete
What a difference is right, so much prettier.ReplyDelete
