Preservationists in Fairhaven are looking for a new spot to display a bell made by Revolutionary war hero Paul Revere.
The bell dates back to 1796 and was first commissioned for the Congregational Church back when Fairhaven was part of New Bedford. Later, the bell tolled as part of the Oxford School.
The bell sounded one last time at the school last weekend, before preservationists took it down. The town is selling the building.
Bell Committee chair Doug Brady said it took some research to verify that the bell was indeed made by Paul Revere.
