The historic bell atop the Proctor School has been silent since 1978, when a neighbor complained about its ringing. But it now has a shot at a new life.
As part of the Proctor envelope project, the bell was taken down and shipped out for restoration. Now it’s back on top of the Georgian building, and Topsfield Historical Society President Norm Isler is one of a number of people who hope it will once again sound from the town center.
Recently, Isler teamed up with Doug Goddard of Compass Project Management to give a presentation to the students. Isler talked about the history of the bell, and Goddard, who is overseeing the envelope project at the school, discussed it from an architectural perspective.
Goddard says the kids wanted to know how the bell was taken down off the roof, where it was stored, what it’s made of, and what it will sound like. They wanted to know when they’d be able to hear it.
“It was the pairing of history and then technology and engineering,” he says.

The Hunnewell School feasibility study will look to create an environmentally sustainable and modern learning environment, architects on the study announced at a Sept. 20 community meeting.
The elementary school’s main section was built in 1938, with several additions tacked on over the 20th century. Years later, the school is showing its age, with space shortages and poor air circulation creating a less-than-ideal learning environment, town Facilities Director Joseph McDonough said at a June 5 special Town Meeting.
At that meeting, the town voted to appropriate $1 million for the feasibility study of the school, located at 28 Cameron St. Potential options for Hunnewell include renovations, additions and/or the construction of a new building.
For the study, the town has engaged Norwood-based Compass Project Management Inc. as owner’s project manager and Cambridge-based SMMA as architects. At a Sept. 20 kickoff meeting, representatives from both firms gave a brief overview of the timeline and study process.
