And what we plan to do about it

The Ugly Bell Tower

Our Gold Rush town of Smartsville, California has a historic church and the purpose of Smartsville Church Restoration Fund, Inc. is to eventually restore it to be a community use building.

At the top we have a very old, large bell dated 1879.

But now the bell tower needs structural repair.

We can use the park-like grounds for local events...

like on our annual Pioneer Day...

and Easter,

on the Fourth of July...

and Veterans Day,

We’ve used the grounds often on special, memorable celebrations . BUT—we can’t use the interior until our restoration work is completed.

So on November 27th we’ll be raising funds for the Bell Tower project on our Facebook page.

Find us at Smartsville Church Restoration Fund, Inc. on Giving Tuesday.

Thanks for helping by making a donation on November 27th, 2018. Your funds will be matched on #givingtuesday and we’ll be closer to our goal of restoring the bell tower. Also visit us at
