Long Description:

County of bell: Lafayette County
Location of bell: city park, inside Zeying Ave., Main St., & Railroad Ave., Alma

I assume this was the old high school bell, although I cannot find any text to confirm my suspicion.

"The word "Alma" is a feminine proper noun which means "Nourishing and Cherishing." Most certainly this reveals the spirit of Alma during its progressive history."

"The pride of Alma is the little park adjoining the de- pot in which many picnics, reunions, and other gatherings have been held. With the "old elm" as center of attraction and beauty, this park has drawn a number of compliments from visitors. Certainly a great deal of credit must be given to those patient and deserving caretakers, F. W. Lohoefener and H. J. Dieckhoff, who have taken care of the park for many years." ~ History of Alma
