Maybe you can help us solve a mystery! (MYSTERY SOLVED)
We have been looking for information about the whereabouts of the bell from the old belltower for over a decade. Murray Bishoff has solved the mystery! He discovered a notice in a 1942 edition of The Monett Times that the 500 pound bell was donated to a scrap metal drive that year. Presumably for the war effort in WWII. A notice also appeared in the Pierce City paper about the scrap metal drive.
