BellAbout this object
Bell; a large, brass bell recovered from Saint Matthias' Anglican church, Owaka. Embossed on the rim of the bell: "A & T Burt, Founders, Dunedin".
The small church, dedicated to Saint Matthias, was built early in 1892 on a section gifted by W Forsyth at the corner of Royal Terrace and the Pounawea Road, Owaka, but it was soon destroyed by fire. A new church was erected on a more central site in December of 1892. This second church was demolished in 2002.
