Sutter Creek's first fire bell was ordered by William M. Tucker (1843-1910) for the Sutter Creek Fire Company.
The bell hung in a wooden bell tower in the late 1800s at the fire station near the corner of Spanish St. and Keyes St.
The bell was relocated to a 60' steel tower at the north end of Main Street and Hayden Alley in 1907 after the formation of the fire district in 1905.

An additional fire bell was installed at the south end of Main Street in 1913 where it is located today.

Dedicated September 4th 2010, by the Sutter Creek Volunteer Fire Department and the Sutter Creek Fire District in memory of all those who have served the city of Sutter Creek and Amador County.
