Thursday, June 6, was the last day for school classes at the Grantsdale Elementary School south of Hamilton.

The school bell, which dates back to the earliest days of the school over 100 years ago, was rung by all the students who were enrolled in this last year, along with various adults who attended the closing day lunch and ceremony.

The bell and its locally built timberframe tower may find its way to the Ravalli County Museum grounds at South 3rd and Bedford in Hamilton.

Dan Rothlisberger of the Bitterroot Historical Society said that funds are being raised to pay for the transport and the foundation of the tower on the museum property. Bricks are being sold that will have names of former students, teachers and those who’d like to support the project.

He said the bell may be used to open the weekly Farmers Market and other special events.

More information is available at the Ravalli County Museum (406) 363-3338.
