Thanks to John Davis for this great photograph looking out over Mary & Ray's House. John climbed up the steeple to investigate the history of our church bell, as it has been an oral tradition at Olivet that the bell was once on a ship. The only way to know for sure was to see if there was an inscription on the bell. John said he would be willing to climb up and look. When he got up there, he read that the bell was from Morgan Iron Works, and listed as having been a bell used on a steamboat calledFerryboat Rhine dating to 1852. It is 60 years older than the church building!
