BELL-ON-PALLETThis morning, while at the county commissioner’s meeting, a call came in that the bell was on the ground. The Madison, Indiana Jefferson County courthouse bell, the one from the burned out clock/bell tower, that is, is safe.  Beautiful piece of work, emblazoned with the date 1864, Cincinnati, in addition to the handiwork. I hope to have better photos at a later date.  The Jefferson County Madison Indiana Courthouse bell photos by Darlene Yarnetsky this morning.
