Taken: Circa February 2009
Caption: The Bell of Hope
The Bell of Hope was once used to tell residents and employees of the Jenkins Orphanage it was time to gather together. Unfortunately, a major fire in the late 1980s destroyed the administration building, several dorms, and this bell. The bell was found in the ashes and restored. Because of its resilience, it was nicknamed the ” Bell of Hope.” It stands near the new administration building.
