The bell of the settlement informed the residents about important events. It could be beginning and end of a working day, a visit of an important guest, a fire or even theft. Over time, when telegraph and telephone came into use, there was no more need for the bell, and it was hoisted to the top of the monument to the founders of the city. Soon he mysteriously disappeared. In 1982, when the Museum of Rishon LeZion was founded, they created a new bell and hoisted it in the same place. Only in 2004 the loss was found. It was hidden by some boys in a house yard. Because of the shame and fear of being punished, they buried the bell and only after decades they’re not calming conscience forced them with the help of a trusted person to return the bell to its rightful owners – the residents of Rishon LeZion.
