The Clovis High School football bell, stolen from a locomotive in 1959, is returning home.
The Eastern New Mexico News reports the Clovis Municipal Schools Board of Education approved a plan Wednesday to return the bell to the same locomotive where it once sat. That locomotive has since been restored and is at a historic rail yard in the eastern New Mexico city.
The stolen bell was used at Clovis High football games. A replica of the bell will be made for continued use.
