In the early 1900's when Cliffside Mill was built, a bell tower was erected to house this bell. It towered above the mill and looked out over the town. This bell was named the "Get Up Bell" by the people of Cliffside. The bell was rung as follows:
Times Rung Indicating to the people of Cliffside
5:30 A.M. · Time to get up
6:30 A.M. · Time to leave home for work
6:50 A.M. · Ten minutes before start up time
12:00 Noon · Lunch time
12:50 P.M. · Ten minutes until time to start back to work
6:00 P.M. · End of work day
The bell has not been in use since the late 40's, but now stands as a monument to the town and people of Cliffside Mills.
