Bells

The Lowell House Bells Homepage

The Lowell House bells, a collection of 17 Russian bells, were given by Charles Crane as a gift to the house in 1930. The bells originally came from the St. Danilov Monastery in Moscow. In 2008, there was a great bell exchange where the original bells were returned to the monastery, and a new set were installed at Lowell House.

The bells are rung every weekend, on Sunday afternoons from 1 pm to 2 pm, and anyone may ring. To get to the bell tower, just keep walking up stairs in F-entry until you get a door with a padlock on it; if it's unlocked, head on up, otherwise just wait a few minutes and a звонарь, or bell ringer, should be there to open it up.
