This bell was part of the old City Hall constructed in 1891 on Main Street near this site. The City Hall Building had two spires. The southern spire had a four faced clock that was operated by a system of counter weights. This bell was struck as a part of the clock mechanism to sound the hour and half-hour of each day until the City Hall Building was demolished in 1962.

This cast bronze bell identified as the BARE Bell was manufactured at Baltimore Foundry, Baltimore, Maryland in 1885.
