Life Expectancy Extended on Historic Structure

Glendale Cemetery Bell Tower

The Bell Tower is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. An open belfry, surrounded by a wood railing, is topped by a concave hipped roof. Just below the belfry are four evenly spaced stone turrets that project from the tower as half-rounds. Built in 1883, the heavy timber roof construction is supported on ashlar sandstone walls. It is approximately 15 feet in diameter and 60 feet high.

In order to extend the life expectancy of this historic structure recommendations were made to clean and seal the exterior fa├žade, repair structural framing, replace the roof sheathing, and install slate roof tiles. Additional work included installing an access hatch, replacing wood railings, repairing platforms, making the roof covering at the top platform level watertight, and installing new ladders.
