Michael Barrett, Executive Director of the Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway and the Burden Iron Works Museum in Troy, NY, will be giving a 40 minute talk about the Meneely Bell, which hangs in the Verdoy Schoolhouse. Four of the largest bell manufacturing concerns in the United States from 1808-1952 where clustered in Troy and West Troy (Watervliet).
