    Ladies and gentlemen, in our confabulation last week, we spoke of the first meeting of Highland Lodge No. 38 of Free and Accepted Masons in 1817 and left off with how the Lodge nearly folded due to the great Anti-Masonic agitation that rose up in America less than a decade after the Lodge received its charter 200 years ago.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as we mentioned earlier, the first meeting of Highland Lodge No. 38 of Free and Accepted Masons was held in Hillsboro in March of 1817 – March 3 of that year, to be exact.

    The first meeting of Highland Lodge No. 38 was held in Hillsboro on March 3, 1817. Yes, that was more than 200 years ago – the lodge received its dispensation in the 1817, but didn’t receive its charter until 1819, so it was decided at the state level that this year, 2019, would be the year the lodge would celebrate its bicentennial with a Reconsecration Ceremony by the Grand Lodge of Ohio.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as we put a proverbial bow on this series of confabulations, it should be mentioned that while the C.S. Bell Co. is no longer in Hillsboro – or in the bell- making business for that matter – C.S. Bell Co. bells are still being produced to this very day.

    Ladies and gentlemen, since we began this series of offerings on Hillsboro businessman Charles Singleton Bell (1829-1905) and the company he founded back in the 1800s, C.S. Bell Co. bells have been featured in news articles in places as far away as India.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we left off from last week’s confabulation, Hillsboro businessman Charles Singleton Bell (1829-1905) had experienced a fortuitous accident that led to his discovery of a metal that produced a ringing sound of a bell.

    Our good friend and Highland County Historical Society founding member Bob Hodson just this week provided me with some more fascinating information about the manufacturing company. Mr. Hodson at one time was a minority partner of the C.S. Bell Co. and shared some background on the company and C.S. Bell himself that I would like to share with you.

    Linda hasn’t been the only one who has reached out with great information on the C.S. Bell Co. and the bells the company produced for generations. Quite a few have shared some really fascinating odds and ends on the company that was a mainstay in Highland County, and we’ll share those particulars in the very near future (and if you have any stories, please drop me a line), but let’s pause for now, and we’ll continue next week.

    Ladies and gentlemen, there is still a C.S. Bell Co. in existence as we’ve mentioned in an earlier confabulation, but the company that’s no longer based in Hillsboro and is now located in Tiffin, Ohio no longer manufactures bells and focuses instead on milling and grinding, conveyors, crushers and recycling. However, there are still C.S. Bell Co. bells that were made right here in Hillsboro all over the world – and even all over the Internet.
