About the Church Bell Restoration Project

Christoph Paccard Bell Foundry recently restored the historic mid-1800’s bronze church bell of the Chapel of the Cross in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The church bell restoration project included replacing the ringing equipment, yoke, bell wheel, clapper, bearings, and bell frame with all new, hot dip galvanized equipment.

The installation also included a new handmade bell rope. The pictures show the process of the restored church bell being removed from the tower and the cast bronze bell prior to the completed restoration.
