Liberty Bell Replica
Liberty Bell 250th Anniversary
In 1751, while Benjamin Franklin was drafting his Plan of Union, the Pennsylvania Assembly ordered a bell from Whitechapel Bell Foundry of London, England. The bell's inscription was described as prophetic. In 2001, a replica was ordered from the same foundry and was dedicated here on September 11, 2002.
Remember: September 11, 2001
This Liberty Bell commemorates the 3000 innocent lives lost in terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and rural Pennsylvania. Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers, Military Personnel, and everyday citizens responded with True Courage, Good Moral Character, and Respect for Innocent Life and Liberty.
