January 1930
 
The Reformed Church on the corner of Clay and Fifth Streets is now equipped with a new bell. Its clear notes rang across the frosty air Sunday for the first time. A bell fund has been accumulating in the church treasury for some time and by the liberality of a few persons, some local and some at a distance, enough money to purchase the bell was finally secured.  It weighs half a ton and was hoisted into the belfry Saturday by Fred Stelloh, Conrad Stelloh and George Frantz, by means of ropes and pulleys. After getting the b ell up in place they built a secure platform under it.  The bell is of fine tone and has tone of F.  The church, which was built in the early nineties by the Unitarian Society, never had a bell.  Since the purchase of the church edifice by the Reformed congregation many improvements have been made and a fine parsonage erected close to the church.  Source: January 19, 2000, Page 24.
