Sanibel Historical Museum and Village bell to be reinstalled

Published: Updated:

The bell at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is scheduled to be reinstalled after its destruction by Hurricane Ian in 2022.

The hurricane caused severe damage to the multiple buildings on the property, but the Sanibel School House, established in 1896, suffered heavy winds that blew the whole belfry (bell tower) off the roof.

At an event on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., there will be a raffle to choose one child to be the first to ring the bell once it is installed.

This checks off another box for the island town’s recovery following Hurricane Ian.
