Bell Toll

Get Flash to see this player.

Westlake Presbyterian began in 1874 in a one-room log cabin just west of Austin, Texas. The building was a school during the week and a church on Sunday. Circuit riders from several different denominations came to preach to the small community congregation.

In 1923, the Presbyterian seminary assigned a minister to the church and it became a mission of Austin's University Presbyterian Church. In 1928, a stone building was erected by the men in the community. The City of Austin Fire Department gave the church a bell, cast in 1877 and used for 40 years to call volunteers fireman. From that time on, the bell could be heard through the halls on Sunday morning, calling people to worship. That same bell, more than 60 years later, still rings at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church.

wish I had more time to set this up and get a proper recording. We were at a funeral and it was picture taking time.

This is for you Fred!
