The crane arrived today. Tomorrow, it will lift the new belfry, bell and spire onto the clock tower . Keeley, the crane operators, will be using the same crane and lifting from the back parking lot again, with a lot more weight in the trunk.
As the spire has been rigged since last week (we have been looking forward to this) we spent the day with last minute preparations: collecting the clock from the library, dropping the staging around the spire, building out the staging up top and installing two more braces at the base of the clock tower.
Join us in Damariscotta for a closer look.
