1. Water Bell Marker
Inscription.  This bell was brought to Corinne by Hyrum House to warn the community at times when the water was to be shut off. In 1896 it was used to ring in Statehood for the State of Utah. It was rung so hard that day, that it cracked, then was placed on a rafter where it balanced for 100 years. It was discovered by the Corinne Historical Society, and removed from the court house and then placed on a trailer and shown through out the county in 1996. And then was mounted here in November 2006.
 
Erected 2006 by Corinne Historical Society.
