Cemetery Bell Sees Light Of Day… Again!

I’ve found the old cemetery bell that use to sit atop a tower to alert Key West for emergencies such as hurricanes and non-emergencies like curfew (true, there was a curfew at one time). Yes, for years this old bell has been in hiding mothballed in storage, but no more! At its new home it sits proudly on display for all to see once again seeing the daylight on a daily basis.

You can find the former cemetery bell at the corner of Virginia Street & Grinnell Street here in Key West on display in the back courtyard of the Key West Firehouse #3 Museum. To look over the fence is FREE, a closer inspection is as follows: Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 3pm, $10 adult, children 12 and under FREE.
