The old Columbia High Bell in place of honor at ACPC

2013-07-30 - ACPC, 158 Col. Casey Drive, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Larry Johnson,
teacher in the Adair County High School Vo-Ag Department, affixes the bell-ringer wheel to the school bell from the old Columbia High School. The bell was installed this morning in the newest Adair County classroom building, Adair County Primary Center, in just over one hours time, though close calls during the painstaking process of moving it from storage in the maintenance department's 350 building to its place of honor in the entrance of the main school made it seem a lot longer. Johnson, whose avocation is antiques and antique restoration, took charge of bringing the bell back of to almost foundry new condition. The luster on the bell is from linseed oil, not paint. The restoration, the move, and the installation were a special project of the Adair County FFA. Both President President Jameson Keen and Treasury Cody Neat assisted in the process, along with members of Ricky Bault's Maintenance Department.
