Timeless Quality

Mr. Henry McShane, 

Dear Sir: - The Chime of nine Bells furnished by you for the Church of which I am Pastor, gives me entire satisfaction. The Bells are rich in tone and far surpass my expectations. All classes of citizens admire the Chime, and the press is unstinted in its praise. You may refer any patrons you may expect to me, and believe me of yourself and firm, a sincere friend and admirer. Yours truly, 

Richard J. Barry

Very peasant people to communicate with, extremely helpful and engaging... World class service, very giving of their time. 

- Sam P.

Our bell was cast in 1882 and still rings as beautifully as it did back then.
