That's awesome. Early in our relationship my wife and I were discussing the difference between want and need. I illustrated it by saying I want to have a beer, but I need a cannon. Shes game if one shows up I can afford.

Little town of Troy, OR near here sets off a 2" black-powder cannon every Fourth. It originally belonged to an old character named Griz, who left it to the town.

Griz didn't believe in shooting blanks. He loaded it with a 2" ball, set up a target at about 100 yds, and hit it every time.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

That is a really nice signal cannon!
For those interested, you can build a loud carbide cannon out of PVC pipe.  Directions were published in Mechanix Illustrated, June 1976 for the Bi-Centennial celebrations.  I attached a copy of the article, and you can find more info if you google the citation above.
I built a 1/2 size version some years back, and still get a "bang," out of it when firing!  Although carbide is not readily available everywhere, you can find it online for carbide mining lamps.  When I acquire some carbide, I vacuum seal about 1/4 cup in individual packets so it lasts much longer.  The carbide will react with moisture in the air and eventually disintegrate over time.  I believe you can also use "bangsite," which is sold for the Big Bang carbide cannons.
Those big bang cannons are pretty cool too.
