School Bell

The bell which had hung in the tower of "the old high school" ad which for  may years had called Maquoketa children to school each morning and afternoon, was found among the ruins of the building after the fire in December, 1921.  A glass case was made for it and a few other fire relics, including several geological specimens and an electric light bulb, and they now can be seen in the school superintendent's office.
