      This 31″ bronze bell is at the Presbyterian Church in Bessemer, MI. One day it fell out of the steeple and rolled down onto the ground. They just closed up the steeple and mounted it on a stand in front of the church.

      Bells usually outlast the structures they are installed in. Apparently the tower hadn’t been kept in repair and could no longer withstand the bell’s weight and swinging motion.
