1. Idaho's Liberty Bell Replica Marker
Inscription.  
This reproduction of the Liberty Bell was presented to the people of
Idaho
by direction of
The Honorable John W. Snyder
Secretary of the Treasury

As the inspirational symbol of the
United States Savings Bonds Independence Drive
from May 15 to July 4, 1950, it was displayed in
every part of this state.

The dimensions and tone are identical
with those of the original Liberty Bell when it
rang out our independence in 1776.

In standing before this symbol, you have the
opportunity to dedicate yourself,
as did our founding fathers, to the principles
of the individual freedom for which our Nation stands.

This bell is one of fifty-three cast in France in 1950,
and given to the United States Government by:
American Smelting and Refining Company • Miami Copper Company
Anaconda Copper Mining Company • Phelps Dodge Corporation
Kennecott Copper Corporation • The American Metal Company, Limited

Steel supports by U. S. Steel Corporation's American Bridge Company
Original plaque donated by Revere Copper and Brass Incorporated

Also see . . .  The History of the Liberty Bell Replicas. In 1950, this foundry was selected by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to cast fifty-five full-size Liberty Bell replicas – one for each state plus U.S. territories, to place on the capitol grounds of each state. Foundry craftsmen measured each feature and dimension of the original Liberty Bell to create fifty-five authentic replicas for the U.S. Treasury Department.
