Historic Bell Removed for Restoration

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Alpha Fire Company’s original (and still operational) bell from 1887 was removed from the roof of the fire station today with assistance from Brian’s Crane Service. Alpha was able to find the original bell manufacturer which is located just outside of Baltimore, Md. The bell will travel to McShane Bell Foundry to undergo a full restoration process to be completed in time to be placed in the bell tower of the new fire station. Once in place, it will be a prominent feature of the new facility for all to see as they pass by on East King Street. Photos submitted
