The 1869 Bell of the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church

The church bell dating to 1869 was taken down from the rooftop of the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church in the Clarksville neighborhood of West Austin in a historic move to signal the restoration project of the church. Workers Alex Cahue, left, and Miguel Pacheco, right, secure the bell out of the wooden tower and attach it to a crane for lowering to the ground.
