|Kansas (Miami County), Paola — City Hall Fire Bell|
|Paola's Volunteer Fire Company, like many others in the midwest, was formed after the great Chicago Fire in 1871. There were no telephones, sirens or radios to notify the firefighters. In 1876, this 400 lb. "nice toned" alarm bell was bought for $150.
When a fire was reported, first a general alarm was sounded. The bell then rang the number of times that corresponded to the district where the fire was burning. Firefighters rushed to that area in search of the fire.
