Belmont Campanile 1923-1978

Belmont High School Campanile,
1923-1968.
In 1921 on Crown Hill, once the site of Hotel Belmont  and the Belmont School for Girls, construction began for a new high school, and two years later Belmont High School opened its door to about 500 students and 24 teachers.

Those first students were nicknamed "Sentinels" because they were able to oversee the entire city from their "lookout" on Crown Hill.  For almost 45 years, until 1967 when it was destroyed to make room for an expanding student body, the Campanile, a Belmont brick tower, was a symbol of Belmont's beauty and unity.
