• Built 1899. Note: temporary stability struts on corners below clock. The Flagpole destabilized the whole tower. The pole was later (5/1919) moved to the roof peak. The steeple was removed later still. Then the bell chamber was shortened and the bell itself lowered about 3 feet. Finally, stability was achieved and remains today. From 4 Jun 1943 to 2001 there was an air-raid siren on the flat tower top.
