Bell on display at the Convention Center.
Built by the Bath Iron Works, this double turreted monitor
was contracted as the U.S.S. Connecticut but while under construction
was renamed the U.S.S. Nevada. On March 2, 1909 she became known
as the U.S.S. Tonopah.
The submarine tender served periodically as
Lt. Chester W. Nimitz's (later Fleet Admiral Nimitz) flagship when
he was Commander of the Atlantic Submarine Flotilla from May 20,
1912 to March 30, 1913. Tonopah operated along the east coast from
Massachusetts to Key West until January of 1918. Later she served
in the strategic area of the Azores. Tonopah was decommissioned
July 1, 1920 and sold January 26, 1922.
Special thanks to Rod & Cindy McAfee for donating a framed photo
of the USS Tonopah that was accepted by the Town Board at the December
10, 2014 board meeting and will be on display with the Bell.
