School Bell Kiosk

The Millet and District Historical Society has in its possession the school bell from the first Millet School, purchased by the Millet and District Lions Club. It is housed in a kiosk built by the Lions Club next to the Museum.

The Historical Society has installed on the front wall of the kiosk a mural depicting the Grade One classroom taught by Marjorie West (later Moen) in 1922. Aluminum plaques telling the history of the first Millet School and of the school bell are mounted on a sidewall in the same building.
