After much work from the "Bring the Ring Back to Ballard" project headed, headed by the Ballard Historical Society, the bell tower across the street from Blackbird (the history of which has been outlined in an earlier post) has been ringing twice a day for the past week. The bell is set to ring at noon and 6PM, as it did traditionally for mill workers.

MyBallard has photos and video from last week's celebration of the bell's new life here,

And below is a short video I shot, surprised by the sudden ringing, while work on the automated system was just being finished.
