This 1,250 pound bell was first sounded in the belfry of the Monumental Bulding at Ohio Avenue and Court Street in January 1905. There is served mainly as a fire bell, ringing when firemen were called to a fire and again as the men returned to the station.

The bell also sounded to mark many events in history. It rang out in 1918 when World War I was ended. Later relocated to the City Building, it was heard twice in 1945 sounding out the peace in Europe and in the Pacific to end World War II.

The bell is silent now, rededicated September 5, 1978 to the many people of Sidney who have served their City, State and Nation.

The bell was relocated to the new Central Fire Station and rededicated on October 27, 1996.
