Port Washington, Ozaukee County, Wisconsin
This bell once graced the tower of Wisconsin Street School, which stood adjacent to the present fire station. School bells such as this were often used to sound the fire alarm. The school was an early Port Washington public school, as well as the vocational school. Former vocational school director, Mr. Gustav Hirsch, purchased the bell when the building was being razed. It was donated to the Port Washington Historical Society by the Gustav and Paula Hirsch family.
The bell is located on the grounds of the Port Washington Fire Department and is accessible at the northwest corner of the intersection of North Wisconsin Street and East Washington Street, at or near 365 North Wisconsin Street, Port Washington, Wisconsin 53074.
The marker is located in Port Washington, Wisconsin.
