Waiting For The Bell To Toll

Scaffolding was erected this past July to restore the bell tower of the United First Parish Church (Church of the Presidents) in Quincy Center. Restoration should be completed by November at a cost of $600,000. This magnificent edifice, built of Quincy granite donated by John Adams, was designed by Alexander Parris and completed in 1828. You can read more about the church here and see the tower here.

Happy Skywatch Friday everyone! We're into a rainy spell once again.
