1. Five Points Civil Association Fire Squad Bell Marker
Inscription.  This bell was donated to the Five Points Civic Association Fire Squad by the Weccacoe Fire Company, 2nd & Jackson Streets, Wilmington, Delaware and used to summon men to alarms in the early 1900's.

It was reconditioned and placed here as a memento to our founding fathers who organized the Five Points Fire Company No 1.

Restoration work was completed and donated by Mr. Fred Schmeusser and Family.
