Among the millions of pages in my collection of Trenton newspapers are many accounts of countless churches in the area which lost their steeples or bell towers; actually, their crowning glory. The First Baptist Church in Trenton had a majestic steeple which reached toward the heavens but it gave way to mother nature. The downed spire in the photo was 120 feet high and brought down into the yard of the adjacent Reed property. Future research should reveal the actual date. For some reason the 175th anniversary history published in 1950 doesn't give the actual date.
